  • Policy as a tool for HepC Elimination


    Day: 1 November

    Time: 17:30

    Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is considered a major Public Health threat in Europe.

    Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is considered a major Public Health threat in Europe. Hepatitis C is a chronic infectious disease with great impact on patients’ morbidity and mortality, with high risk of progression to cirrhosis and liver cancer. In Europe, it is estimated that only 25% of patients with hepatitis C are diagnosed (~14 million people); each year there are 27,000-29,000 newly diagnosed HCV cases in the EU/EEA. Evidence shows that, for some European countries, annual deaths from hepatitis c have quadrupled over the past 20 years. New treatments were recently discovered that cures hepatitis C in up to 97% of cases. This, alongside the devastating effects that the disease can have, means that the paradigm at the community level of hepatitis c treatment should now be elimination.
