The primary target audience for these modules is clinicians working with patients who are coinfected with HIV and latent TB infection and HIV or patients who are at risk of coinfection with HIV and latent TB infection. TB and HIV experts from the Western Region wrote and present the case-based lessons in this course, which includes slides, audio narration, and interactive questions. To allow learners to tailor the learning experience to their needs, the course is offered in a modular format: its lessons can be taken separately or in any order. To fit into TB professionals' busy schedules, each lesson is 20 minutes or less in length. Introduction: Two Diseases, One Patient Presenter: L.
