Description

This training manual has been written for people who are responsible for delivering HCV treatment and care with people who inject drugs PWID, including those working in harm reduction, drug treatment or other health and social care services. PWID who fulfil an advocacy role are – themselves – also a vital audience for this resource.

The manual is structured around a three day learning programme with modules that: introduce HCV, its transmission and prevention; examine the diagnostic tests and treatments that are used and the evidence that underpins these; considers the issues that arise in the case of co-infection with HIV; and, promotes reflection on some of the key organisational, practice and policy issues that affect the provision of HCV treatment and care.

Although there is an underlying three-day structure, the programme is modular and intended to be used and adapted in line with people’s needs, the local situation and the opportunities and resources available.
