INHSU has collaborated with the Australasian Society for HIV, Viral
Hepatitis and Sexual Health Medicine (ASHM) and the Kirby Institute at
the University of New South Wales (UNSW) to develop and deliver
hepatitis C education, globally.

The Hepatitis C in Primary Care and Drug and Alcohol Settings Education Program provides healthcare practitioners with the knowledge and skills to expand hepatitis C (HCV) care beyond hospital settings.

WHERE IS IT TAKING PLACE?

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

Globally, HCV-related morbidity and mortality are rising due to large populations with chronic infection, an ageing infected population and low treatment uptake.

However, following the advent of well-tolerated, simple, short-course direct acting antiviral (DAA) interferon-free HCV treatment regimens with cure rates >95%, there is potential to reverse the rising burden of disease with increased treatment. By expanding HCV care into primary care and drug and alcohol settings we have an opportunity to enhance HCV assessment, management and treatment, particularly among people who use drugs.

WHO SHOULD TAKE PART?

The Program is designed for healthcare practitioners working in primary care or drug and alcohol settings or working with people who use drugs.

The Program is tailored for each country in close collaboration with local stakeholders to ensure education materials and resources are in-line with local guidelines and appropriately support increased HCV screening, linkage-to-care and treatment for people living with HCV.
