Title: Systematic Hep C Test-and-Treat Lowers Rate in Gay Men With HIVWaging a concerte
Post by: Hep Editors on April 13, 2018, 10:17:55 am
Waging a concerted effort to conduct repeated widespread testing and treatment of hepatitis C virus (HCV) among men who have sex with men (MSM) living with HIV appears to be an effective means of preventing sexual transmission of HCV in this population.

Numerous studies have indicated that, at least in Western nations, there is a rising epidemic of sexually transmitted HCV among HIV-positive MSM. HIV-negative MSM are also at risk, although apparently to a lesser extent.
