During the period 343 samples were enrolled above the age of 18 or older, who had history of HIV/TB co-infection.

Pretested questionnaire was used to gather socio-demographic characteristics (residence, age, sex, marital status, religion) and behavior pattern (alcohol and smoking consumption) of respondents.
