|Abstract: ||Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) has one of the highest global hepatitis C virus (HCV) prevalence estimates.
However, reports that suggest high rates of serologic false positives and low levels of viremia have led to uncertainty
regarding the burden of active infection in this region. Additionally, little is known about the predominant
transmission risk factors in SSA.|
