Dr Nick Scott presented at the NDARC Webinar Series on Thursday 12 May 2022.
This webinar presented modelled estimates of the health and economic benefits of achieving hepatitis C elimination in Australia. In order to achieve elimination and realize these benefits, uptake of testing and treatment must be high among people who inject drugs. The webinar also examined a recent modelling study on the impact and cost-effectiveness of incentives to facilitate testing and treatment uptake among people who inject drugs.
