Chronic Hepatitis B Infection Among Preexposure Prophylaxis Users Enrolled in a Population-Based Program in British Columbia, Canada


Initiation of human immunodeficiency virus preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP) medications will also treat hepatitis B infection (HBV). The prevalence of chronic HBV was 0.86% (n=41/4760) among enrollees in a provincial PrEP program in British Columbia, Canada. Overall, 46.3% lacked follow-up HBV DNA monitoring, underscoring the need for HBV-related education for PrEP prescribers.
