Addressing the TB screening, prevention and treatment needs of people living with HIV in the era of COVID-19

This webinar, hosted on 13 April by the International AIDS Society, provided a summary of the latest evidence around tuberculosis (TB) for people living with or vulnerable to HIV and TB-infection from the Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI 2021), and highlighted tools and guidance from implementers, global donors and normative agencies. It provided an opportunity to amplify the voices and perspectives of civil society representatives on TB and HIV services that respond to people’s health needs and preferences and showcase TB and HIV service delivery approaches that are truly person-centered.
