Comparaison des profils, pratiques et situation vis-à-vis de l’hépatite C des usagers de drogues russophones et francophones à Paris, ANRS-Coquelicot Study, 2011-2013

Abstract : Eastern Europe countries face a critical HCV epidemic due to the repressive policy governing drug use. Since the mid-2000s, people who inject drugs from East-Europe (especially from Georgia) migrate to France. In Paris and its suburbs, around a third of patients who attend harm reduction facilities or treatment centers are from Eastern Europe and Russian speaking countries. This context led the French National Institute for Health and Medical Research and Santé publique France to conduct a cross-sectional study called ANRS-Coquelicot among Russian-speaking drug users, with the aim to describe their sociodemographic profiles, their practices and their access to care concerning hepatitis C. The results of this study show that HCV seroprevalence among Russian-speaking drug users is twice higher than among French-speaking (9 drug users out of 10 are positive for HCV antibodies). Russian speaking drug users are characterized by a higher level of education, but have more precarious living conditions than French speaking drug users, that corresponds to a social decline linked to the migration experience. Drug use practices are different between Russian speaking and French speaking drug users (higher number of injection practices and more widespread drug use), but the levels of injecting paraphernalia are similar. These epidemiological data tend to reinforce access to care in terms of medical and social care for all these sub-populations of drug users, especially vulnerable to HCV exposure.
