Harnessing the COVID-19 Response Towards Hepatitis C Elimination

Archives:

On February 3, 2021, Treatment Action Group, Médecins du Monde, hepCoalition, and the UNITE network presented a virtual policy dialogue among policymakers, global civil society organizations, and community leaders who share how COVID-19 has impacted global hepatitis C virus (HCV) elimination efforts. Following the International AIDS Society COVID-19 Prevention Conference, the virtual policy dialogue launches a policy brief that highlights how R&D and investments used for HCV have benefitted the COVID-19 response. We invite policymakers and community leaders to share their expertise, experiences on the ground, and initiatives that have sustained HCV responses during the pandemic.
