Answer

Those receiving treatment or following treatment discontinuation. On-treatment monitoring is recommended at least every 3 months for the first year in/for the following:

  • Individuals with more advanced disease (compensated/decompensated cirrhosis)
  • Individuals coinfected with HBV/HIV
  • During the first year of treatment (to assess treatment response and adherence)
  • When treatment adherence is a concern
  • Individuals after treatment discontinuation
