The report shows that policy improvements have not all translated into changes at the facility level. Moreover, the burden to carry out TB-HIV activities still falls heavily on under-resourced TB programs. The report highlights the need for the HIV and TB communities to join forces and finally give this deadly issue the attention it deserves. The report includes specific recommendations for high TB-HIV burden countries, for donors (the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria, UK DfID, U.S. PEPFAR, and the World Bank), and for advocates regarding how they should fight the dual epidemics of TB and HIV.
Main findings include:
- The burden to support key TB-HIV activities still falls heavily on under-resourced TB programs.
- Lack of appropriate tools undermines the TB-HIV response.
- Policy improvements have not all been translated into changes at the facility level.
- To achieve an effective TB-HIV response, more investment in human resources is needed.
- Donor assistance does not fill all of identified gaps in TB-HIV collaborative activities.

Services for migrants and refugees from Ukraine – HIV/TB care with a focus on key populations
Due to the increasing flows of refugees from Ukraine because of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the EECA Regional Platform created a spreadsheet to fill contacts details of face-to-face and online services for refugees and migrants (with a focus on HIV/TB care and key population groups).
If you provide such services or know verified providers, please fill out the spreadsheet at your earliest convenience, and, please, update it as more verified information is available. These can be services for national citizens if they are also accessible to international migrants and refugees.
