The World Hepatitis Alliance has published a Global Policy Report which contains the results of surveys of ‘civil society’ groups around the world and their comments on the actions of their respective governments with regard to viral hepatitis. Action Hepatitis Canada provided input about Canada which can be found in this document. The executive summary can be read here and the full report here.
As we mark World Hepatitis Day (July 28th), people living with hepatitis C virus (HCV) have reason to feel hopeful. New cures for HCV are now available, and more effective treatment options will hit the market in the future. Despite the increased hope, there is concern. New cures are very expensive, raising questions about patient access to treatment.
