Members of INHSU Prisons have co-authored an article in Volume 6, Issue 5 of The Lancet Gastroenterology & Hepatology titled:

The article is available for free for 50 days via this link.

Speaking of the article, INHSU Prisons, says: “HCV prevalence among incarcerated individuals far exceeds that of the general population yet care and treatment for HCV is extremely limited in correctional settings worldwide. In this review, we highlight seven priority areas that provide a framework to further HCV elimination efforts in correctional settings. We also provide case examples from diverse global settings that highlight best practices.”

The International Network on Health and Hepatitis in Substance Users – Prisons Network (INHSU Prisons), is a special interest group of INHSU for members who would like to participate in scientific knowledge and information exchange, knowledge translation, and advocacy for enhanced hepatitis care in custodial settings.
