Direct acting antiviral-based treatment of hepatitis C virus infection among people who inject drugs in Georgia: A prospective cohort study
People who inject drugs (PWID) are often excluded from HCV treatment programs due to concerns about their ability to adhere to care. Georgia has a high prevalence of HCV infection (5.4% of chronic cases in general population) with an epidemic concentrated among PWID. We evaluated adherence to care and sustained virologic response (SVR) among PWID in Georgia.
