HIV and Hep C Co-infection in NYC Data
- Almost 12,000 people are living with HIV and Hep C in NYC and more than half have a history of injection drug use.
- Curing Hep C in HIV/Hep C co-infected persons leads to better health, less premature death and prevents transmission to others.
- 79% of co-infected New Yorkers have been diagnosed with Hep C, but only 13% have been cured. There is still work to be done.

Project SUCCEED is a targeted intervention to link co-infected people of color to care and treatment for HIV and hepatitis C for New Yorkers in the greater metropolitan area. This intervention is carried out by the Bureau of HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control and the Viral Hepatitis Program in the NYC Department of Health, and includes medical practice transformation for the providers who treat co-infected patients and linkage to care and support for co-infected people of color in the New York Eligible Metropolitan Area (NYC EMA).
