1about the burden of significant liver damage in people living with HIV (PLHIV) after achieving HCV microelimination. The residual liver disease following curative direct-acting antiviral therapy (DAA) HCV treatment is a concern, which calls for screening and early treatment of PLHIV at high risk of infection, notably men who have sex with men (MSM). We conducted a study to evaluate the potential impacts of HCV test-and-treat strategies and model the prospect of microelimination of HCV in HIV-positive MSM.
