The National Viral Hepatitis Roundtable has released a fact sheet outlining the medical case for curing all hepatitis C patients. This fact sheet can be used to educate policymakers, medical providers and community members about why everyone living with hepatitis C should have access to the cure.
Hepatitis C treatment that leads to a cure is the only evidence-based intervention to prevent liver disease progression and “watchful waiting” can in fact be harmful to patients. A majority of hepatitis C patients may be at risk for at least one non-liver medical condition. Providing all hepatitis C patients with access to a cure is the most effective way to eradicate the virus at a population level. Medical experts recommend treatment for all hepatitis C patients as the standard of care.
