Public Health England: Hepatitis C in the UK 2020 report


On 14th December 2020, Public Health England published their annual 'Hepatitis C in the UK' report. This analyses the UK's progress towards the World Health Organization's target of eliminating hepatitis C by 2030 at the latest, which the Government signed up to in 2016. The latest report uses 2019 data to assess progress towards elimination, but also includes a section on the impact of Covid-19 on hepatitis C services, noting that "the Covid-19 pandemic poses a serious threat to our ability to meet WHO HCV elimination goals".
