Abstract

Recent reports suggest the potential for an epidemic of Hepatitis C among nonintravenous drug-using HIV-positive men who have sex with men. HIV-positive specimens from surveillance surveys in 2004 and 2008 were tested for HCV antibodies. Among noninjection drug using men who have sex with men, HCV prevalence was 8.7% and 4.5% in 2004 and 2008, respectively. There was no evidence of a change in HCV prevalence between 2004 and 2008.
