The Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) says the Health Department has shown little progress in integrating TB and HIV care.
TAC recommends that “Patients should not go to different clinics and see different nurses and doctors for the management of the diseases.
TAC has also shifted the blame to Aids Council for being conspicuous by its lack of engagement on HIV and AIDS issues whereas they receive substantial funding.
The organisation has appealed to the government to allow patients with the drug-resistant TB to be given a drug called TMC207, even if the drug is still under clinical trials and not approved yet.
