Incidence of TB and HIV in Prospectively Followed Household Contacts of TB Index Patients in South Africa. Our objective is to report the incidence rates of TB and HIV in household contacts of index patients diagnosed with TB using a prospective cohort study in the Matlosana sub-district of North West Province, South Africa. Contacts of index TB patients received TB and HIV testing after counseling at their first household visit and were then followed up a year later, in 2010. TB or HIV diagnoses that occurred during the period were determined.
