Event Title

P-36 Prevalence of Co-Infection of Human Immunodeficiency Virus and Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C

Start Date

3-2-2018 2:30 PM

Description

The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) remains a major global public health problem, and about a third of those infected with HIV are co-infected with hepatotropic viruses. This study endeavors to raise awareness, find better methods, and design public health policies to address the diseases in more effective ways. The country of focus is Madagascar because it is considered a highly endemic area for hepatitis B (HBC) with the prevalence of it shown as 23% in the general population. The goal is to determine the prevalence of co-infection with HIV and HBC and hepatitis C (HCV) in five hospitals.
