Abstract:

The study was conducted at PIMS (Punjab Institute of Medical sciences) at Jalandhar from January 2016 to April 2016. In the present study, 2500 police personnel were screened for blood borne infections namely HIV, HCV and HBV. 2220 (88.8%) were males and 280 (11.2%) were females amongst them. According to age distribution, the maximum personnel i.e. 1870 (74.8%) belonged to the age group of 21- 30 years followed by31-40 years (12%), 41-50 years (9%) and >50 years (3.4%). Out of total 2500 personnel, prevalence of HIV reactive was found to be 0.4%, HCV reactive was found to be 1.16% and HBs Ag was 0.5%. The study revealed that in HIV reactive cases 10 were males and only 1 case of female. 22 males and 7 females were found to be reactive in HCV and in HBs Ag there were 7 males and only 1 was female. In our study, we found that the prevalence of HIV and HCV was more predominant in females (0.71% and 2.5%) as compared to males (0.45% and 0.99%). The prevalence of HBs Ag in females was slightly more (0.35%) as compared to males (0.31%).
