Prevalence & Factors of HCV Infection Among HIV-Negative & HIV-Positive MSM
  "Of 774 participants, 2.0% (15/551) of HIV-negative and 28.3% (50/223) of HIV-positive MSM were HCV-antibody positive at enrollment. Of these, 56/65 (86.2%) were aware of their diagnosis, but only 5 HIV-negative and 17 HIV-positive MSM reported prior HCV treatment, with only 2/7 reporting treatment success. Figure 1 is a mosaic plot of the HIV and HCV relationship among MSM at baseline."
