TB forgotten in fight against HIV in Malawi

TB forgotten in fight against HIV in Malawi, say researchers. In Malawi in southern Africa, one of the poorest nations in the world, 50,000 new cases of tuberculosis are registered every year, compared to 5000 about 30 years ago. SINTEF scientist Lisbeth Grut has carried out a research study that interviewed disabled people in Malawi about the knowledge of epidemics. The informants turned out to be well informed about how to take precautions against HIV. However, they were confused when the questions turned to the causes and treatment of TB. Some of them did not even know that TB is an infectious disease, while many believed that it affected only people who already have HIV, and some did not know whether or not they had been tested for TB.
