Divided Nations: Tackling the hepatitis C challenge across the UK


Nov 2008 by All-Party Parliamentary Hepatology Group
In response to the public health challenge of Hepatitis C, national Governments in England, Scotland and Wales have taken radically different approaches. The All-Party Parliamentary Hepatology Group convened a meeting to explore the impact of the different national strategies. The meeting provided an opportunity for Parliamentarians, experts and stakeholders to compare and contrast the effectiveness of each approach and identify areas of best practice, which can be shared across national borders. The APPHG heard from speakers from England, Scotland and Wales who described the strategy that each country had taken, the reasons why they had taken their approach and their plans for the future. 'Divided Nations' provides a report on this meeting, comparing the approaches of England, Scotland and Wales in tackling Hepatitis C.
