We determined the prevalence of HBV/HCV in 2,473 people of African ancestry with HIV in the UK. Overall, 6.2% were co-infected with HBV and 1.3% with HCV. Central (aOR 2.40 [95%CI 1.23-4.67] and West (2.10 [1.29–3.41]) African ancestry was associated with HBV and Central (6.98 [2.00–24.43]) African ancestry with HCV.
