2016 First National Hepatitis C Mapping Report
The First National Hepatitis C Mapping Project Report contains estimates for 2016 on the prevalence, diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of hepatitis C at the SA3, Primary Health Network and State/Territory level. For the first time, maps illustrating the geographical diversity of CHC prevalence and treatment are included in the report. These highlight local areas where improvements in engagement in care can be made.
These estimates can be used to judge the progress Australia has made towards the National Hepatitis C Strategy 2014-2017 targets, as well as the WHO Global Health Sector Strategy on Viral Hepatitis 2016-2021.
