This study, begun in late 1999, is monitoring the results of hepatitis C testing of new and existing clients of 198 Youth Health Centre. The Youth Health Centre provides services to clients aged 10-25 years. When clients are offered hepatitis C testing, with their consent, details of testing, results and demographic and risk factor information are forwarded to the study team. The project will continue to monitor the incidence of hepatitis C among the clinic's clients for up to three years, providing baseline data for evaluating the effect of intervention to reduce hepatitis C transmission.
