• Hepatitis C and HIV coinfection

    A report on Dr Laura Waters’ presentation “Hepatitis C and HIV confection: overview and talking about risk.”

    Dr Waters gave an interesting and informative presentation on Hepatitis C reviewing transmission risk behaviours, testing and diagnosis, treatment options (in the NHS), diagnosis and risk of reinfection, particularly among MSM living with HIV. This was an excellent reminder to clinicians to routinely discuss Hepatitis C, particularly in light of the increase of injecting drug use (slamming) involved with chem sex as well as the increasing evidence of sexual transmission of HCV amongst MSM.
