Abstract: ABSTRACT Title: Quality of Life: Comparison between people living with HIV and HIV-TB co-infection Background of the study: Human immunodeficiency virus infection and tuberculosis account for a massive burden in the country. As these diseases have an impact on the quality of life of patients with HIIV and TB, this study has conducted to assess and compare the quality of life of people living with HIV and HIV-TB co-infection. Objectives of study: The main objective of the study was to assess and compare the quality of life of hospitalised adults with HIV infection and HIV-TB co-infection. It also aimed at finding the association between the quality of life and selected demographic variables. Methods: A cross sectional comparative study was conducted among 80 hospitalised patients with HIV and 80 with HIV-TB co-infection. The Quality of life was assessed using translated WHO_QOL_HIV_BREF questionnaire through face to face interviews. Analysis was done using descriptive statistics, linear regression, ANOVA. Results: The results show that there were variations in the quality of life in people living with HIV as well as people living with HIV-TB co-infection. The mean overall Quality of life score (QOL) of people living with HIV was 3.74 ± 0.98 when compared to the mean and SD of overall QOL score of people living with HIV-TB co-infection, which was 3.5± 1.01.The most affected domain among people living with HIV and HIV-TB co-infection was level of independence (13.05 ± 2.3051 vs 11.65 ± 2.71).There were significant difference in Psychological domain (p<0.03), Level of independence (p<0.00), Social domain (p<0.03), Environmental domain (p<0.00) and Spiritual domain (p<0.00) among people living with HIV and HIV-TB co-infection. There were no variables associated with the QOL of People living with HIV, whereas the duration of illness and the length of hospital stay had significant association with the QOL score of people living with HIV and TB co-infection. Conclusion: HIV and TB worsens the progression of both infections each other. The HIV-TB co-infection weakens the physical and mental function of the patients and impair their quality of life. This study concluded that the overall quality of life of people living with HIV- TB co-infection is much lower as compared to people living with HIV infection. So, it is important to develop some interventions to improve the quality of life among people living with HIV-TB co-infection.
