In brief: Yes

Co infection with hepatitis b or hepatitis c ( that is having HIV and either of the above) is documented to generally result in further progression of both diseases.
Therefore, patients with either illnesses must be screened to rule out co infection... Treatment is encouraged for both viral illnesses. New treatments are available for hepatitis c.
