Hepatitis C Setting Standards in a Journey towards the Eradication of Infection and Disease as a Serious Health Issue in the EU


2014 by Professor David Goldberg and Sharon Hutchinson
Initiatives which translate evidence and strategy into Hepatitis C Action are few and far between in the EU. In light of this and the prospect of Highly Effective Interferon- free Antiviral Therapy (HEIFAT) and the potential to make serious progress towards the eradication of infection and disease as a serious health issue, the author who led the team which generated and implemented Scotland’s Hepatitis C Action Plan – a now well-acknowledged paradigm – summarises the current state of play in this report, and makes recommendations on how the standard of service provision across the EU might be improved and made more consistent.
