Abstract: Tuberculosis (TB) is a chronic infectious disease that mainly affects the pulmonary and extrapulmonary regions. Furthermore, the transmission route is through the release of droplets suspended in the environment. In addition, this pathology may be associated with co-infection with the HIV virus, which ends up worsening the clinical condition of individuals, resulting in the potentialization of TB. The objective of this work is to describe the epidemiological profile of registered cases of Tuberculosis-HIV co-infection between 2016 and 2020 in Brazil. This is a cross-sectional, quantitative and descriptive research based on secondary data extracted from the Notifiable Diseases Information System (SINAN), made available by DATASUS. Based on this study, the importance of understanding the analysis of the Brazilian sociodemographic profile to improve public health strategies both for diagnosis and for the quality of life of the patient was confirmed.
