• Avoiding Unnecessary Testing - Removing Barriers for Hepatitis C Treatment

    (A report back from Dr Sunil Solomon - Elimination of hepatitis C in people who inject drugs in low and middle income countries: The Final Frontier - The Australasian Viral Hepatitis Conference Day 1)

    I really enjoyed Dr Sunil Solomon’s presentation. It was about how GPs can do case finding by finger prick test and confirm Hepatitis C by a blood test. Dr Sunil spoke about avoiding unnecessary testing pre-treatment and during follow up after starting treatment to reduce obstacles for patients and help to achieve the goal of eliminating hepatitis C.
