Abstract

OBJECTIVE: to ascertain the epidemiological profile of TB/HIV co-infection in Brazilian scenarios. METHOD: this is a systematic review conducted via electronic search in databases PubMed, EMBASE, LILACS and SciELO, having as inclusion criterion articles based on the Brazilian scenario of TB/HIV co-infection. RESULTS: of the total 174 studies, 15 were selected, revealing the epidemiological profile of the co-infection in different scenarios: male, economically active age, low education level, brown/black ethnicity, low income, heterosexual, pulmonary clinical form, alcoholism and Directly Observed Therapy. CONCLUSION: the sociodemographic and epidemiological profile of people with TB/HIV co-infection has an expected occurrence pattern, which corroborates articles found in the literature, either at national level or by grouping the studies according to region or state.
