National Screenig - Sibiu, May 2016

Romanian nationwide screening for infection with HIV and hepatitis B and C viruses

Despite the introduction of national immunization against HBV since 1996 through neonatal vaccination and catch-up regimens, hepatitis B remains prevalent and underdiagnosed in Romania in 2016

Hepatitis C and HIV infection also remain important public health concerns and require the implementation of nationwide screening studies to ascertain real-life incidences and the extent to which they are underdiagnosed.

We have implemented a study to screen for hepatitis B and C viruses (HBV, HCV) and HIV infection in the general population in Romania

Patients were referred to the National Institute for Infectious Diseases “Prof. Dr. Matei Balș” from the general practitioner (GP)
