This study used a cross-sectional study of new PLHIV enrolled from January 2012 to December 2014. It assessed:
- the screening cascades for intensified case finding for tuberculosis (TB)
- isoniazid preventive therapy (IPT), including demographic and clinical factors associated with treatment interruption
- TB infection control (IC) in the health facilities.
The authors conclude that implementation of the Three I’s for collaborative TB-HIV activities in pilot sites in Nepal was successful and should be scaled up.
