In brief: Sorta
If you have hiv, then you are more prone to get infections, including hep c and the same risky behaviors expose you to both.
The good news is both are treatable these days.

In brief: Yes and no
Hiv and hepatitis c are two different disease entities.
However, both of them are transmitted through sexual contact and through sharing needles.
