COVID-19 has changed the profile and importance of many diseases in the world. WHO declared TB a worldwide emergency already in 1993 and together with HIV has ranked as major cause of morbidity and mortality in Africa for the last decade and more. Yet, with the arrival of COVID-19, the focus has rapidly shifted. Attention and resources have been diverted to contain the new epidemic. However, TB and HIV cannot be neglected as both conditions affect individuals’ immune system and as such would make them more vulnerable to COVID-19 infection and disease. In view of this the HIV and TB for Health Care Professionals in the Era of COVID-19 Short Course has been designed and developed to ensure that all health care providers are up to speed with the latest developments and treatment modalities available for HIV positive and TB patients and providing essential information on the management of COVID-19 in such patients.
