Abstract Hepatitis C virus (HCV) amongst people living in detention (PLD) is typically high in many countries including Switzerland, where it is estimated that the HCV prevalence rate is between 5.7% and 6.2%. In Switzerland, the existing screening strategy involves routine screening of PLD who indicate they are from HCV high-risk populations based on questionnaire responses upon entry to the detention center, rather than an offer to screen all PLD.
