Facility-based, cross-sectional study was conducted and 423 TB patients interviewed. The prevalence of self reported HIV testing among sampled TB patients was 57%. Adjusted correlates of HIV testing include primary education, being merchant, had moderate HIV risk perception and high-HIV risk perception. Patients who had willingness for PIHCT found more likely to have been tested for HIV. While experiences with client and provider-initiated HIV testing overall were positive, 86.2% of the patients were willing for PIHCT. The only adjusted correlates of willingness for PIHCT were being older age group and had demand for HIV testing. Early evidence of widespread support for PIHCT and moderate acceptance of HIV testing in this study holds significant promise for the control, prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS and TB. Concerted efforts to scale up PIHCT, however, must be accompanied by intensive IEC on TB /HIV along with tackling of testing barriers.
