Eliminate Hepatitis C Australia

Elimination is the Goal

We have the chance to eliminate hepatitis C from Australia.

Australia is leading the world in reaching the goal of eliminating hepatitis C as a public health threat by 2030 because we have unrestricted access to DAAs and specialists, general practitioners and nurse practitioners can all prescribe hepatitis C treatment.

From March 2016 to December 2018, an estimated 70,260 people have been treated with DAAs. To reach our target we need to treat over 80% of people living with hepatitis C virus (HCV), reduce HCV-related deaths by 65% and reduce new HCV infections by 80%.

To make this happen, we need more general practitioners (GPs) and authorised nurse practitioners to treat hepatitis C and more primary care practices to prioritise hepatitis C within their busy clinics.

Some parts of Australia are leading the way in treating hepatitis C, and we can learn from them to improve access to treatments across Australia. Working in partnership is the only way we will achieve our goal of eliminating hepatitis C from Australia.
