Abstract

Abstract

Few studies have focused on the epidemiology of in resource-challenged settings in China. We report a community-based cross-sectional study to investigate the prevalence of infection and its risk factors and associations with hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infections. The prevalence of infection was 12.6% (95% confidence interval = 11.0–14.3). Individuals living in households with ≥ 5 family members and raising domestic pigs tended to have a greater risk of infection. In addition, infection was significantly associated with HBV infection. There were no significant associations of infection with HIV viral load and HBV viral load. Further studies are needed to determine the association of infection with HBV infection.
