Prevalence of HIV, HCV and HBV in IDUs

Tables INF-1, INF-2 and INF-3 provide a summary overview by country of latest available data on HIV, HCV and HBV prevalence in samples of injecting drug users

Tables INF-108, INF-109 and INF-110 show (national and subnational) data on HIV prevalence in samples of injecting drug users, as well as prevalence among young injectors and new injectors for HIV (see also Figure INF-3).

Tables INF-111, INF-112 and INF-113 show (national and subnational) data on HCV prevalence in samples of injecting drug users as well as prevalence among young injectors and new injectors for HCV (see also Figure INF-6).

Table INF-114 and Table INF-115 show (national and subnational) data on prevalence of current hepatitis B infection (HBsAg) and of HBV antibodies (aHBc, aHBs) among injecting drug users, respectively (see also Figure INF-9).

Table INF-117 shows national and subnational data on prevalence of HIV, HCV and HBV markers among drug users in prison and injecting drug users in prison. Part (i) shows prevalence of HIV infection, part (ii) of hepatitis C antibodies, part (iii) of HBsAg, a marker of current hepatitis B infection, and part (iv) of hepatitis B antibodies where aHBc is an indicator of ever-infection (both current and resolved).

HIV case reporting and hepatitis B/C notifications

Tables INF-104 show HIV infections newly diagnosed (case reports) among injecting drug users by country and year of diagnosis These data, provided by ECDC–WHO/Europe, are both provided as numbers of cases and as rates per million population (see also Figure INF-1 for reported AIDS cases and Figure INF-2: for reported HIV cases)

Tables INF-105 and INF-106 show notifications at national level of newly diagnosed HCV and HBV cases, respectively. For hepatitis notifications, rates per million are not calculated, given the likely low comparability of the data between countries. These tables also give the percentage of IDUs among the cases of hepatitis C and B that have information on the presumed transmission category.

Table INF-107: a small number of countries report incidence data for HCV from follow-up studies of IDUs at mostly sub-national level. Table INF-107 reports the number of IDUs followed, the number of sero-conversions, follow-up time, the incidence rate per 100 person-years.

Table INF-0 lists all bibliographic references.
