In the present study, the computational modeling that describes the evolution and propagation of people susceptible to HIV-AIDS infection as well as Tuberculosis will be carried out. This additionally generates a coinfection in those infected that further complicates the epidemiological situation. Therefore, the presence of sanitary-epidemiological support personnel is important to consolidate prevention and control strategies. This epidemiological phenomenon could be modeled by differential equations, but we will focus on modeling by cellular automata to obtain computational simulations in time-space, and obtain possible scenarios and opt for the appropriate scenario to implement the most effective epidemiological strategies to obtain the results. better results and preserve the quality of life of society.
