Hepatitis C virus in people who inject drugs (PWID): Regional Webinar

Watch Professor Graham Foster, Mr Duncan Hill, Dr Cyrus Abbasian and Dr Professor Rosmawati Mohamed in this expert discussion exploring Hepatitis C virus in PWID in Asia and Europe.

Despite significant treatment advancements, Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection remains a worldwide health burden, particularly among people who inject drugs (PWID). Global prevalence of HCV in PWID is ~70% positioning this population as critical for treatment if we are to achieve the WHO elimination goal by 2030. This IOTOD webinar features Europe and Asia-based experts in HCV care and opioid dependence, to share best practices for addressing HCV in PWID, current care barriers and solutions to overcome them. By encouraging practice exchange between regions, we hope to learn lessons and together help optimise HCV care.
