HCV Reinfection
  Jules: Despite the risk for reinfection there is no reason to deny initial or repeat treatment for IDUs or MSM who are reinfected. Treatment for these at-risk groups is an opportunity to educate about the risk for reinfection, and regardless denying treatment is not appropriate, it is not the clinician's decision to deny treatment, it will only lead to a higher risk for increasing further transmissions.
