HBV/HIV Co-infection

Diagnosis and Screening

All HIV-positive patients should be screened for viral hepatitis (A, B and C). Those who test positive for hepatitis B and C should seek care from a liver specialist (hepatologist or gastroenterologist) for further evaluation and management.

HBV/HIV co-infected patients who are not immune to the hepatitis A virus (lacking anti-HAV IgG antibodies) should be vaccinated to protect them from acquiring another harmful liver virus.
