A group of organizations including Treatment Action Group issued this statement/declaration today, while attending INHSU 2020 Africa: the 1st Regional Conference on Hepatitis Care in Substance Users.
According to the statement, “In the African region and globally, we recognize that morbidity and mortality due to hepatitis C infection continue to rise. We acknowledge that people who use or inject drugs represent a priority population, given the high prevalence and incidence of hepatitis C infection. This is a failure of a commitment to harm reduction.”
