The objective of this work was to determine the epidemiological profile and the seroprevalence of hepatitis B and C infections as well as that of HIV among volunteer donors of the National Blood Transfusion Center of Kinshasa. To achieve this, a prospective, epidemiological and descriptive study was undertaken at the laboratory department of the National Blood Transfusion Center in October 2019, by collecting 464 donors who attended the CNTS during the period from November 24 to December 23, 2019. Profiles The epidemiological incidence rates of HBV, HCV and HIV were respectively 11.4% 95% CI [10.6% 34.0%]. 401 subjects or 86.4% were male against 63 subjects or 13.6% female.
