Untreated HCV in HIV/HCV-Coinfected US
Population Despite an Abundance of Curative Therapies

  "treatment of HCV in this population of coinfected patients was suboptimal" "By year, the percentage of patients with active HCV that received treatment increased from 17% in 2014 to 23% (p<0.001) in the last period [FIGURE 3]. At the end of the observation period, 882 (23%) patients remained untreated, 1,210 (31%) were LTFU, and 1,804 (46%) were treated. [FIGURE 4].....The data suggest that females and <50 year old patients had lower treatment rates. Median time to treatment was 4 months longer than median time of last care for patients lost to follow up, suggesting that more timely treatment and/or improved patient engagement are critical in care of the coinfected population."
