2.3.2 Implementation considerations

Recommendations on specific tools to be used for screening people living with HIV are described in detail in Section 3. Persons living with HIV who have a positive or abnormal screening test should go on to have primary diagnostic tests to confirm or rule out TB disease including an mWRD and lateral flow urine lipoarabinomannan assay (LF-LAM), if eligible (8). Once TB disease is ruled out, either through a normal screening test or after a negative diagnostic evaluation, people living with HIV should be evaluated for TPT as part of offering a comprehensive package of HIV care (20).
