The draft Order “Clinical Protocol of Medical Care to Patients with Tuberculosis and HIV co-infection” which is now at the stage of public discussion sets forth that identification of TB patients is carried out during examination of HIV-infected patients in each case of seeking medical assistance at the regional AIDS centre or any facility of primary, secondary (non-specialized) medical care with complaints and/or symptoms resembling tuberculosis irrespective of their duration (page 12). The Draft National Plan for TB/HIV Co-infection Monitoring and Assessment in Ukraine for 2013-2016 provides the collection of information for the indicator “Percentage and number of HIV-infected patients screened for TB at the facilities providing assistance or treatment in case of HIV-infection within the reporting period”; this will enable to control execution of regular examinations of TB HIV-positive persons.
