Black Women With HIV/HCV Less Likely to Die From Liver Disease

Black women who are co-infected with HIV and hepatitis C — an infectious disease that affects the liver — are less likely to die from liver disease. University of California San Francisco researchers found that while hepatitis C treatment doesn’t work as well in African-American women as it does in white women, Black women only accounted for 8 percent of liver disease deaths.
