    • Abstract:
      Anti-HCV reactive subjects were selected and relevant data was collected. Viral load and genotype were determined for all patients and were divided into low (<800,000 IU/mL) and high viral load (>800,000 IU/mL). Correlation of viral load with parameters like age, gender, risk factors and genotype etc. was determined by binomial regression. Higher viral load was noted with genotype 4, males and high risk groups like People Who Inject Drugs (PWIDs), blood transfusion before routine testing or frequent transfusion, Intravenous drug therapy and MTP by unregistered medical practitioners (P ≤ 0.5). Prevention and treatment strategies for HCV should be tailored around these areas.
