Eliminating hepatitis C virus (HCV) in Australia is now a possibility. Join us for the official launch of Burnet Institute’s Eliminate Hep C Program and hear from leading HCV experts about how elimination could be achieved.
Burnet’s program will address some key global priorities and build upon ground breaking biomedical research, modelling and analysis that demonstrates the feasibility and public health benefit of eliminating hepatitis C.
HCV affects more than 250,000 Australians resulting in up to 630 deaths from liver cancer and liver failure each year. Globally, more than 500,000 people die from HCV-related causes each year.
