As the world continues to battle the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020-2021, countries with high HCV disease burden are working hard to ensure that HCV care disruption is minimised and those most in need have access to care and services. There are government and community actors responding to the needs of people living with HCV, and much more can be learnt from them to inform our response towards achieving the HCV elimination goal in 2030.
This is the second webinar of the Hepatitis C PACT Webinar Series: Hepatitis C Elimination Strategies. It aims to highlight some of the models of care in HCV management from Viet Nam, Cambodia and Thailand, and contribute to the discussion for HCV elimination by 2030.
