Workshop webinar: Hepatitis C in the justice system - going beyond prisons

Testing and treatment for hepatitis C in prisons has been a vital part of the push for hepatitis C elimination. This webinar will look at how services can build on this work to deliver testing and treatment to people after they leave prison and other people in contact with probation services.

This webinar will be of particular use to:

  • Hepatitis C Operational Delivery Network nurses, managers and doctors
  • Public health professionals
  • Drug treatment services looking to work with probation services on hepatitis C
  • Probation health leads and probation services interested in learning more about hepatitis C elimination projects
