  • Webinar: Measuring progress towards hepatitis C elimination
    Each nation in the UK has set rapidly approaching targets for eliminating hepatitis C; many areas and services in the community and prisons have done the same. Being able to measure what such "microelimination" looks like will be critical to both celebrating and maintaining this achievement. This HCV Action webinar, held on Zoom on 7th July 2021, heard presentations from Public Health England, NHS England, NHS Tayside and the Practice Plus Group. Following the presentations, there was an opportunity for attendees to participate in a Q&A session to ask questions and share best practice.
