Few HCV/HBV infections identified in adults with access to care

Only a small number of viral hepatitis infections were identified among those who have access to care through health care organizations, according to recent data.
“Even among persons enrolled in large, private-sector health care organizations, relatively little is known about the sociodemographic and clinical characteristics associated with viral hepatitis testing and infection prevalence,” the researchers wrote. “For example, limited data suggest that only a fraction of viral hepatitis infections among patients within large health maintenance organizations — where access to care is relatively favorable — are identified.”
