Our expert says:
Having TB should not affect the result of a HIV test.
That said, the Rapid tests used are very sensitive and can deliver false positives. This is why a confirmatory test (different brand of rapid test) should always be done straight after a positive result on the screening (1st) test.
If in doubt, consider a PCR test (testing for the presence of the virus itself).
