Hepatitis C Virus Elimination in the Human Immunodeficiency Virus–Coinfected Population: Leveraging the Existing Human Immunodeficiency Virus Infrastructure

Academic Article

Abstract

  • © 2018 Elsevier Inc. The objective of this review is to consider how existing human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infrastructure may be leveraged to inform and improve hepatitis C virus (HCV) treatment efforts in the HIV-HCV coinfected population. Current gaps in HCV care relevant to the care continuum are reviewed. Successes in HIV treatment are then applied to the HCV treatment model for coinfected patients. Finally, the authors give examples of HCV treatment strategies for coinfected patients in both domestic and international settings.
