Malaria and HIV/AIDs are two of the most devastating global health problems of our time.

Together they cause more than 4 million deaths a year. Both are diseases of poverty, and both are causes of poverty. Both are largely concentrated in the same geographical regions.The resulting co-infection and interaction between the two diseases have major public health implications:

  • HIV-infected people must be considered particularly vulnerable to malaria
  • Antenatal care needs to address both diseases and their interactions

Where both diseases occur, more attention must be given to specific diagnosis for febrile patients. (Source WHO)
