Public Health England Hepatitis C in the UK 2019 Report


Public Health England
Public Health England published its annual 'Hepatitis C in the UK' report on 13th September 2019. This is the key national reporting document for hepatitis C and monitors the UK's progress towards its goal of eliminating the virus by 2030. This year's report finds that although fewer people are living with chronic hepatitis C than in previous years, the proportion of these people who do not know they are infected has increased to two-thirds (up from half). The report concludes that 'much good work has been done, but there remains lots to do if we are to eliminate hepatitis C as a major public health threat by 2030'.
