The coinfection with HBV and HCV was investigated by PCR method. Data were analyzed by fisher exact test and prism7 software.
 
Results
The results of this study on serum samples of HIV-infected people showed the prevalence of HCV/HBV coinfection in HIV-positive individuals to be %3.22, the prevalence of HBV infection in HIV-positive individuals %4.45, and the prevalence of HCV infection in HIV infected ones %22.5.
 
Conclusions 
According to the common routes of transmission of HCV, HBV, and HIV viruses, it is essential that all people who are HIV-positive or HIV-infected be screened for hepatitis B and C viruses by highly sensitive diagnostic methods.
