Abstract

Global projections from the World Health Organization rank chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and HIV as the third and eighth leading causes of death by 2030, respectively. An increasingly large number of individuals will consequently face a double burden of disease. The incidence of COPD is relatively high in the HIV-infected population, and HIV has been shown to be an independent risk factor.
