Govt intervenes to keep hep C elimination on track

NSW Health is encouraging people across the state living with hepatitis C to take advantage of new easy-to-take and highly effective medications, which can cure the illness. The medication program is part of the NSW Ministry of Health’s $4.5 million investment in 2018-19 to strengthen hepatitis C testing and treatment.

This year, Hepatitis Awareness Week is focusing on increasing treatment efforts for people who inject drugs. All people who currently inject drugs or have previously injected drugs should ask their doctor for a hepatitis C test and for hepatitis C treatment if they do have the infection.
