Objective: To analyze the aspects associated with tuberculosis cases outcome among people living with HIV. Methods: A cross-sectional study conducted between 2010 and 2014 in a large municipality located in the countryside of São Paulo State, which was considered a priority city for tuberculosis control. Secondary data collected in the TBWEB, SINAN, SISCEL and SICLOM information systems were used. Descriptive statistics and Multinomial Logistic Regression techniques were used, considering outcome (cure, default and death) as a dependent variable, and sociodemographic, clinical and clinical/therapeutic follow-up information as independent. Results: A higher chance of occurrence of unfavorable TB treatment outcome in people living with HIV was observed among those with lower education degree, hospitalization history and without record of the treatment type received. Conclusion: There should be integration between tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS control programs, as well as other services of health care networks and social support network for the provision of actions and services that address social, economic and health needs, aiming at the adequate follow-up of TB-HIV co-infection cases and the achievement of favorable tuberculosis outcomes in people living with HIV.
