Description

This policy brief summarizes key findings from an assessment of hepatitis C treatment accessibility in EECA undertaken by the Eurasian Harm Reduction Network (EHRN). It also refers to recommendations from the World Health Organization (WHO) on how to support national governments and affected communities in order to improve hepatitis C treatment access.
The EHRN mapping was conducted in October- December 2011 in six countries of Eastern Europe and Central Asia (EECA): Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Lithuania, Russia and Ukraine. The main goal of the mapping was to assess access to pegylated interferon and ribavirin, a combination that at the time of the mapping was the internationally recognized standard for hepatitis C treatment. Each chapter offers recommendations on overcoming specific barriers to treatment.
