Highlight of the Month

In recognition of World AIDS Day, December 1, this month's newsletter features materials about TB and HIV/AIDS. Prevention and treatment of TB in people living with HIV is an urgent priority for both HIV/AIDS and TB programs. This month's highlight is a report of the WHO Three I's Meeting, held in April 2008 by the World Health Organization (WHO) HIV/AIDS and TB Departments, in

WHO Three I's Meeting
collaboration with other key partners. The meeting was convened to develop recommendations and guidance for national programs and their partners for implementation of the Three I's for people living with HIV. The Three I's - isoniazid preventive treatment (IPT), intensified case finding (ICF) for active TB, and TB Infection Control (IC) - are key public health strategies to decrease the impact of TB on people living with HIV.
