The Federal Ministry of Health in its effort to provide an effective and coordinated response to the dual epidemics of TB and HIV, established the National TB/HIV Working Group (TWG) in 2006. Also in the same vein, policy documents (The National Strategic Framework for TB HIV Collaborative activities and the National Guidelines for the Clinical Management of TB/HIV co-infection) were developed. These documents have over the years been reviewed continuously in order to incorporate changes in best practices in the management of these diseases.
