The number of people infected with the Hepatitis C virus has risen to a staggering 200 million worldwide, yet there is surprisingly little information available to the public about this silent epidemic. Cara Bruce and Lisa Montanarelli, both of whom live with Hepatitis C and have become experts on the condition, guide those newly diagnosed step-by-step through the first year following diagnosis. They provide crucial information about the nature of the disease, treatment options, diet, exercise, the myriad of emotional issues that accompany the diagnosis, and much more. The First Year--Hepatitis C will be an invaluable guide for everyone struggling to rebuild their lives after a Hepatitis C diagnosis.

Hepatitis B and C cause most cases of hepatitis in the United States and the world. The two diseases account for about a million deaths a year and 78 percent of world's hepatocellular carcinoma and more than half of all fatal cirrhosis. In 2013 viral hepatitis, of which hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) are the most common types, surpassed HIV and AIDS to become the seventh leading cause of death worldwide. The world now has the tools to prevent hepatitis B and cure hepatitis C. Perfect vaccination could eradicate HBV, but it would take two generations at least. In the meantime, there is no cure for the millions of people already infected. Conversely, there is no vaccine for HCV, but new direct-acting antivirals can cure 95 percent of chronic infections, though these drugs are unlikely to reach all chronically-infected people anytime soon. This report, the first of two, examines the feasibility of hepatitis B and C elimination in the United States and identifies critical success factors. The phase two report will outline a strategy for meeting the elimination goals discussed in this report.

In the United States it is estimated that 3.2 million people are infected with the Hepatitis C virus, which is a contagious liver disease that can range in severity from a mild illness to a serious, lifelong condition. Infections worldwide are estimated at 150 to 200 million people, many of whom are not aware they are affected. Gregory David finds out the hard way that he is one of the infected through a letter, which reads, We regret that at this time our company cannot offer you a life insurance policy. We based our decision on your recent alcohol use during the past six years, and the presence of the Hepatitis C virus. At first, Gregory is in disbelief, and he insists on having his doctor perform an independent test. But when the results come back, he learns that his earlier years of occasional drug use and constant partying may have finally caught up with him. The coming weeks and months pose huge obstacles as Gregory learns about the disease, breaks the news to family and friends, and struggles to cope with an infection he at first knows little about. Join Gregory as he confronts the disease, and find inspiration in Breaking Free from Hepatitis C.

WHO approved more hepatitis direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) for the treatment of infection with the hepatitis C virus (HCV) by 2020 which helped low- and middle-income countries increase the number of registered treatments, reduce prices of a full treatment under US$100 – update is as low as $60 for three months, and strive towards hepatitis C elimination. For the first time, this year’s report includes information on hepatitis C diagnostics. With a focus on selected countries with diverse HCV epidemics, the report provides updates on the various dimensions of access to HCV diagnostics and pharmaceutical products, including product pricing, the regulatory environment and patent status, which together shape the national hepatitis response in different settings. It highlights key areas for action by ministries of health and other government decision-makers, pharmaceutical manufacturers and technical partners. Globally, at the end of 2017, only 5 million – or 7% – of the 71 (62–79) million people chronically infected with HCV had cumulatively received treatment with DAAs. As countries continue to tackle the disease burden and service disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is critical to ensure that the recent momentum and gains in the response to hepatitis C are not lost. Against this backdrop, this report is a strong reminder to continue to invest in building resilient and sustainable health systems that are focused on universal health coverage.
