A summary of a baseline study which included 1145 persons who were tested for the blood-borne infections HIV, hepatitis B (HBV) and hepatitis C (HCV) between July 1, 2007 and August 31, 2008. Almost all participants were interviewed about their drug and sexual habits. Serum Antibodies against hepatitis A virus (HAV) were also analysed. Since HAV, however, contaminates via the oral route and not via injections, these data are not reported in this study.
