HCV Action & Public Health England Hepatitis C Good Practice Roadshow
9th May 2017
Hepatitis C is a major cause of the UK’s rise in mortality from liver disease, and represents a serious health inequality issue that predominantly affects disadvantaged and marginalised groups. With the aim of enhancing local service provision and seizing the opportunity for progress provided by a new generation of highly effective hepatitis C drugs, this roadshow is focused on:
- Showcasing and sharing good practice in the prevention, testing, diagnosis and treatment of hepatitis C
- Identifying specific issues and potential solutions for tackling hepatitis C in the Cambridge and East of England region
The roadshow, which will form part of a HCV Action hepatitis C action week in the area, will include talks on the hepatitis C landscape in the region, the commissioning of services, awareness and testing, and opportunities for the elimination of hepatitis C as a major public health concern offered by the new treatments. Afternoon workshops will be held on issues of specific relevance to the local area.
