The Eurasian Harm Reduction Network (EHRN) developed this tool specifically for people living with hepatitis C, including community groups working with and on their behalf; the staff and volunteers of harm reduction programs; and medical specialists. The purpose of this tool is to help intended users to evaluate the degree to which their countries' clinical protocols for hepatitis C treatment comply with international best practices. The results of such evaluations can be used to provide suggestions for developing national protocols for chronic hepatitis C treatment, or for improving already existing national protocols.
Hepatitis C Treatment Waiting List is the initiative implemented by Eurasian Harm Reduction Network. The campaign was developed based on the input provided by treatment activists from Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Lithuania, Moldova, Russian and Ukraine. The main goal of the campaign is to mobilize communities living with HCV and their allies in Eastern Europe and Central Asia (EECA) and worldwide around access to hepatitis C treatment.
