Objectives People who inject drugs (PWID) are disproportionately impacted by hepatitis C virus (HCV). Despite the availability and efficacy of direct-acting antiviral (DAA) HCV therapies, treatment rates remain low among PWID. Among PWID, those who are young (under age 30) experience high rates of HCV and also face distinct barriers to care. The ob...

The forgotten of the pandemic Young adults are paying the heaviest price for the pandemic, in terms of social and economic consequences. This situation affects their mental health and their difficulties in accessing the services they need. Thus, the pandemic reveals social inequalities and weakens the already most vulnerable groups.

Although the HIV epidemic is generalized in West Africa, some population groups such as men who have sex with men (MSM), especially those engaged in transactional sex (TS), are thought to be particularly more vulnerable to HIV than others. However, few data are available to help identify their health-related needs with a view to implementing target...
