Caption

HIV+ patients. HIV-positive patients at a clinic for tuberculosis (TB) treatment. HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) attacks the immune system, eventually causing AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome). Tuberculosis is a bacterial disease that can affect the lungs and kidneys, although in most cases the infection is inactive and it does not spread or cause symptoms. HIV infection makes a TB infection more likely to become active and possibly begin spreading to others. TB progresses more rapidly and causes more severe disease in people infected with HIV. Photographed in Gishari, Rwanda.
