  1. The effects of hepatitis C viral infection on 896 HIV patients were presented. HIV positive viral load (suppressed, not suppressed), and world health organization clinical stages (stage I, stage II, stage III and stage IV) were cross checked with their hepatitis C viral infection status. X2 test and their corresponding P-values were used to check the associations
