Incidence of Hepatitis C Virus Infection in the HIV Outpatient Study (HOPS) Cohort: 2000-2013.... from 2011-2023 MSM HCV hazard ratio was 4.5 times greater vs IDUs (Table 2)
  "During a median follow-up of 7.8 years, there were 102 (5.2%) incident HCV infections"
"while having IDU HIV risk was significantly associated with incident HCV infection during 2000-2013, in the last calendar period of 2011-2013, patients with MSM HIV risk tended to be of higher risk of incident HCV infection than patients with heterosexual risk." from Jules: in Table 1 you will see there were 102 new HCV infections -  numbers of HCV infections in IDUs (9) vs MSM (60), heterosexual (27)
