The Correlation – European Harm Reduction Network (C-EHRN) released Eliminating Hepatitis C in Europe: Report on Policy Implementation for People Who Inject Drugs. The publication is part of C-EHRN’s Civil Society-led Monitoring of Harm Reduction in Europe 2023 Data Report and focuses on the availability of and access to interventions that constitute the HCV continuum of care specific for people who inject drugs.
The report analyzes data from 35 European cities, provided by civil society organisations designated as focal points within the C-EHRN network. It assesses the impact of national strategies on HCV testing and treatment accessibility for people who inject drugs, examines the continuum of care across countries and cities, explores changes in the continuum of services over time, and highlights the role of harm reduction services in this context.
In an interview, Tuukka Tammi, programme director at the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare and the primary author talks about the findings of the report and how harm reduction organisations can use the report to advocate for their work at a city level. Access the interview here.
