Introduction: Testing and early detection of hepatitis B and C infection determine indications for the services of prevention and treatment and are a key component for effective response to the epidemic of these infections.
The Aim of the Study: Analysis of the state early detection of viral hepatitis B and C in Kyrgyzstan to develop a mass testing program as a stage towards eliminating the epidemic of blood-borne viral hepatitis in the country.
Materials and Methods: State Reporting Forms No. 1 “Report on infectious and parasitic disease” for 2008–2021 were reviewed. The data was processed by Epi Info 3.8.1
Results” The Kyrgyz Republic belongs to countries with high incidence of viral hepatitis B and C. The incidence of acute and chronic viralhepatitis B in 2021 amounted to 29.2 per 100,000 population, and hepatitis C -10.8. Based on the results of testing by some healthcare organizations, the hepatitis B virus infection of the population ofvaries from 4.6% to 7.3% and hepatitis C - from 3.1% to 7.7%. Data of official statistics (Department of Disease Prevention and State Sanitary-Epidemiologic Surveillance and the Centre of Electronic Healthcare) on theprevalence of acute and chronic hepatitis B and C differ considerably. Thereis no information about the exact number of patients with all forms of hepatitisВ and C, cirrhosis and liver cancer in their outcome.
Conclusions: To ensure the access of patients with chronic viral hepatitis and cirrhosis in their outcome to the services of diagnostics, highly effective methods of treatment and preventionit is needed to conduct a phased mass testing of the adult population for viral hepatitis B and C in order to determine the true number of such patients.
