Abstract

Hepatitis C is one of the most neglected diseases by governments internationally. Identify the prevalence of hepatitis C and associated injection drug users in three cities of factors Colombia. Cross-sectional study of 668 injecting drug users recruited through respondent-driven sampling, inquired about demographic characteristics and risk behaviors. Laboratory testing was used on filter paper and cases of hepatitis C viral load tests with RNA were confirmed. Hepatitis C prevalence and associated factors was estimated with Chi-square test statistics and reasons for crude and adjusted prevalence were calculated using logistic regression. The prevalence of hepatitis C was 17.5% and were found as factors that increase the prevalence of hepatitis: having HIV, injecting another person carrying the virus dose used was sharing a syringe, injected with a syringe and consume marijuana. As a factor that reduces the prevalence, purchase syringes in drug stores or other stores. This research evidence established consumption of drugs by injection , and the presence of hepatitis C in social networks of IDUs and highlights the importance of developing interventions for harm reduction and prevention of hepatitis C in this population these three cities.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 17 January 2018.
All research outputs
#6,436,852
of 12,450,620 outputs
Outputs from Revista Brasileira de Epidemiologia
#25
of 148 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#141,525
of 375,428 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Revista Brasileira de Epidemiologia
#1
of 3 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,450,620 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 48th percentile – i.e., 48% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 148 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.9. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 95% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 375,428 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 61% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 3 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
