  1. The determinants of hepatitis C viral infection among 3537 tuberculosis patients were presented. The binary logistic regression outputs for each predictor were presented using the adjusted odds ratio and P-values. Hepatitis C viral infection among tuberculosis patients were determined by problematic alcohol use, female sex, HIV, and chronic illnesses
