Intervention to Improve HCV Treatment Uptake and Adherence in HIV/HCV Coinfection
End-stage liver disease, predominantly due to hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection, is one of the leading causes of death in person living with HIV infection. While HCV is curable and recent advances in treatment have increased the rates of cure, few patients with HIV and HCV are being treated to cure HCV. This study will develop and test a behavioral intervention to increase the rates of HCV treatment initiation and adherence in HIV-positive persons with HCV co-infection.
Keywords: HIV, HCV, Adherence
