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 second webinar of Hepatitis C PACT Webinar Series aims to highlight some of the models of care in HCV management from Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand, and contribute to the discussion for HCV elimination by 2030.
The webinar series is supported by World Health Organization South-East Asia and World Health Organization Western Pacific Region.
