ABSTRACT:
Background In central India (M.P.) there is high prevalence of hepatitis; of which hepatitis C contributes as a major cause of hepatitis. In our area there were no major efforts to contain the disease. According to one estimate most of the hepatitis C occurs due to negligence transfusion of infected blood (Hepatitis C). Therefore we have tried to found percentage of population infected with this disease. Material and Methods Study design – Prospective study. For screening donors we have used one step rapid test for the detection of HCV and confirmatory test was done by ELISA method. Statistical Analysis Statistical analysis was done by using Minitab 17 Pennsylvania, USA. Results In our study we found 1.6% HCV infected blood among healthy donors; which was Insignificantly (p > 0.05) more in voluntary donors in comparison to replacement donors. Male between age groups 29-38 were found highly infected in comparison with other age groups. We also found prevalence was highest in Hindu community (1.69%) and more in student group (2.2%) in comparison to working and farmers. Conclusion For effective control of transfusion of infected blood and to prevent its spread, we have to improve community knowledge towards vaccination; educational programs for blood bank personals; and government should open blood banks at Community Health Center level.
