Zhuang X et al. – There was no significant temporal trend in HIV and HCV prevalence among clients in Methadone maintenance treatment (MMT) during 2004–2010. Prevalence of HCV is markedly higher than prevalence of HIV among MMT clients. It is recommended that health educational programs in China promote the earlier initiation and wider coverage of MMT among injecting drug users (IDUs), especially HIV–infected IDUs.
