Achieving Hepatitis C Elimination in Pakistan
Modelling suggests that achieving the World Health Organization incidence target for hepatitis C virus (HCV) elimination in Pakistan could cost US$3.87 billion over 2018 to 2030. However, the economic benefits from integrating services or improving productivity were not included. A modelling study and economic analysis published in PLOS Medicine concluded that investment in HCV elimination can bring about substantial societal health and economic benefits for Pakistan.
