TB has decreased a lot in Africa

Treating poz patients who have TB with HAART and TB treatment (rifampin)at the same time works best to improve survival.

Immune reconstitution disease in those with HIV and TB is a strong factor in complications.

Those with cryptococal meningitis and hiv have higher mortality with immune reconstitution.
Prednisone is being studied to treat immune reconstitution.

Hep B increases risk of liver toxicity of HAART
