We analyzed medical records data from MSM receiving HIV care at 9 HOPS clinics, including 3 Ryan White Program-funded sites, during January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2019. We included participants with at least 2 HOPS encounters, at least 2 years of observation, and at least 1 CD4+ T-lymphocyte count (CD4) and plasma HIV ribonucleic acid ([RNA] viral load [VL]) test result performed during observation. We excluded participants with injection drug use HIV risk, or those who had a positive HCV antibody or HCV RNA (VL) test before or at the start of observation (baseline date, see definition below). In addition, we censored observation during follow-up for participants after their first positive HCV antibody or HCV VL test. We then evaluated HCV antibody testing during follow-up among MSM without evidence of current or prior HCV infection. We performed a subanalysis for those participants who completed at least 1 ACASI survey during 2011–2019.
