Viral hepatitis B, C and Δ represent a global public health problem for which France was very early mobilized. Despite this, in its foreword, the Dhumeaux report on "Management of people infected with hepatitis B or hepatitis C viruses" identifies a residual area of weakness in this care that is the incomplete regional epidemiological data in the Overseas Territories. The specific ethno-socio-cultural characteristics of these territories make it difficult to transpose data from the mainland France. This study aims at improving our knowledge on the characteristics of patients with hepatitis B, C and Δ in Reunion Island, their follow-up, their evolution and complications.
