England Aims to Be the First Country to Eliminate Hepatitis C

Country Correspondent: Molly Fitzgerald

In its 70th year, the National Health Service (NHS) England has announced ambitious plans to make England the first country in the world to eliminate hepatitis C, and it hopes to do it at least five years earlier than the World Health Organization’s goal of 2030. To achieve this, the NHS is working closely with the pharmaceutical industry to procure new treatments, prioritize the sickest patients, and identify patients living with the disease. England is already innovating in the treatment of hepatitis C, using strategies such as “pay per cure” (the NHS only pays when a patient is cured), creating regional operational delivery networks to facilitate treatment access, and establishing a national hepatitis C patient registry.
