          Abstract

          Objective To explore the epidemic characteristics and trend of hepatitis C in Shenzhen, and to provide a theoretical basis for effective strategy for general prevention and control of hepatitis C.

          Methods The incidence data of hepatitis C in Shenzhen during 2008-2017 were collected from national diseases reporting information system from Chinese Information System for Diseases Control and Prevention to conduct descriptive epidemiological analysis.

          Results A total of 18 671 cases of hepatitis C reported in Shenzhen from 2008 to 2017, and the incidence ranged from 14.16/100 000 to 22.31/ 100 000, the average incidence rate was 18.54/100 000. It showed low morbidity, no death, no agglomeration, no obvious seasonal high incidence, but the overall incidence showed a slow upward trend. All ages had morbidity, and the cases were mainly concentrated in the 20-50 age group. The annual incidence of the 0-year-old group in Shenzhen was maintained at around 15 cases, and the incidence of the under 10 years old group accounted for 1.2% of all cases. The population of hepatitis C in Shenzhen were mainly due to household chores and workers.

          Conclusion The incidence of hepatitis C in Shenzhen is mainly dominated by young, middle- aged and household chores, workers people. At the same time, mother- to- child transmission is also one of the important ways for hepatitis C transmission in Shenzhen. Therefore, we will continue to carry out health education and risk behavior interventions for the prevention and treatment of hepatitis C infection in migrating populations, enhance their awareness of prevention, reduce behavioral risks and conduct prenatal examinations. The implementation of hepatitis C maternal and child blockade is the most effective way to prevent and control hepatitis C in Shenzhen.
