Hepatitis C

The field of Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) treatment is changing at a rapid pace with the advent of highly effective directly acting agents (DAAs); the challenges of treating co-infected patients are significant.

Our understanding of hepatitis B (HBV) and the increasing cases of reactivation of hepatitis B with immunosuppression and treatment of hepatitis C has re-emphasized the importance of understanding about the diagnosis, prevention, and management of this infection.

Although the primary mission of the AETCs is focused on HIV, viral hepatitis is increasingly important both independent of and related to HIV. Risk factors for acquisition of these viral infection is similar to HIV and management recommendation guidelines are frequently updated. In the U S, approximately 730,000 people are chronically infected with hepatitis B virus (HBV), while over 2.7 million people are chronically infected with hepatitis C virus (HCV).
