|Slide 25. Estimated HIV Coinfection in Persons Reported with TB, United States, 1993–2008. This slide provides minimum estimates of HIV coinfection among persons reported with TB from 1993 through 2008. Since the addition of the request for HIV status to the individual TB case report in 1993, incomplete reporting has provided a challenge to calculating reliable estimates. Results from the cross-matching of TB and AIDS registries have been used to supplement reported HIV test results. For all ages, the estimated percentage of HIV coinfection in persons reported with TB decreased from 15% to 6% overall and from 29% to 10% in persons
aged 25 to 44 years during this period.
