An Old Disease Takes on a New Partner
Tuberculosis (TB) and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) are among the leading infectious disease killers in the developing world.

These diseases are combining to create what many fear is a global health catastrophe. This short booklet highlights some of the ways in which Catholic Relief Services (CRS) is addressing co-infection around the world.
