Title: Drug Use, Unstable Housing Tied to Lack of Hep C Treatment in People With HIV
Post by: Hep Editors on January 19, 2021, 11:36:12 am
Despite strong evidence that people who use drugs or are unstably housed can successfully complete hepatitis C virus (HCV) treatment if given proper support, such individuals who are living with both HIV and HCV are still less likely to receive treatment for the latter virus.

That’s the key finding from a study conducted at the University of California, San Diego, in which researchers analyzed factors associated with whether people with HIV and HCV coinfection had received a referral for direct-acting antiviral (DAA) treatment for hep C.
