A Population-based survey for the prevalence of Hepatitis C Virus Infection in Georgia

Rationale for survey

Rationale for Survey

  • Georgia may be among countries with highest HCV burden worldwide

  • Limited data on national HCV prevalence, risk factors and population at risk

    (Tbilisi survey > 10 years prior)

  • Need for high quality serporevalence data

    (Disease burden)

  • Need to describe genotypes

    (treatment and response)

  • Georgia Ministry of Health priority

Objectives

Objectives

  • Primary Objective: Estimate the prevalence of HCV infection in the general population by age groups, regions, and urban/rural residence

  • Secondary Objectives

    • Assess risk factors for HCV infection in Georgia

    • Describe HCV circulating genotypes

    • Identify knowledge and perceptions towards hepatitis and its prevention and treatment


Survey

Survey

  • Design:multistage, cluster, random sampling

  • Population: males and females > 18 years of age, residing in randomly selected households in Georgia.

  • Sample size: total approximately 7,000

    (based on 95% confidence interval +/- 1%, design effect of 2,

    30% non-response rate)

  • Stratification: 16 Strata (10 regions + 6 cities)

    • Tbilisi (sample of 1000, including 200 IDU)

    • Telavi, Kutaisi, Batumi, Zugdidi , Rustavi (sample of 400*5=2000, including 500 IDU)


Idu subsample

IDU Subsample

  • Additional sample of the IDU population within the 6 sampled cities of Georgia

  • Design - Snowball sampling

    any self-reporting IDU respondents other IDUs with whom they have contact

  • Will be analyzed independently of the main seroprevalence sample

  • Will give stronger prevalence estimates for this high-risk group


Data collection team

Data Collection Team

  • Survey Instrument – Questionnaire

    • Household information

    • Socio-demographic data

    • Medical History

    • Lifestyle information

    • Knowledge, Attitudes, Perceptions

  • Specimen - venous blood

HCV Testing Algorithm

Anti-HCV

Anti-HCV Positive

Anti-HCV Negative

HCV RNA

HCV RNA Positive

HCV RNA Negative

HCV Genotyping


Analysis

Analysis

  • HCV prevalence in Georgia (+/- 1%) and

    • Cities (6)

    • Regions (10)

    • Bivariate analysis assessing association between factors (demographic/risk) and HCV infection

  • Multivariate logistic regression

    • models examining association between independent variables and HCV infection

  • HCV Genotype distribution


Benefits

Benefits

  • National/Regional by Urban/Rural Data

    • HCV infection prevalence (burden)

    • Risk factors for transmission (prevention)

    • Genotype distribution (care and treatment)

  • Laboratory capacity building

  • Epidemiology capacity building

  • Additional research/studies (stored sera)


Next steps serosurvey

Next Steps (Serosurvey)

  • Protocol (finalize and submit to IRB)

  • Recruitment of Teams

  • Training and Validation of Survey Tool

  • Fieldwork

  • Laboratory Analysis and Capacity Building

  • Data Analysis/Modeling

  • Publication of Results
