DLTLD is responsible for overseeing clinical activities at approximately 2,200 TB diagnostic and treatment facilities and for collecting routine surveillance data.
In 2005, DLTLD added key HIV-related information to the local TB facility register and the district-level reporting forms: HIV testing status for TB patients, HIV test results, and receipt of cotrimoxazole prophylaxis, which are available directly from TB clinic records, and information about ART during TB treatment, which generally is based on patient reports of care received at separate HIV clinics (8).
However, the findings in this report show that DLTLD has been successful in providing key HIV services within the existing TB program infrastructure.
