HCV Micro-Elimination in Hospital Setting
A study, published in the Journal of Infection and Public Health, evaluated the efficacy of an innovative model of HCV micro-elimination in a hospital setting in an area of high HCV prevalence. Between January and December 2019, a prospective, interventional study for a program of HCV case-finding and linkage to care was performed in S. Anna and S. Sebastiano hospital of Caserta, in Campania, a region in southern Italy.
A simple, rapid, inexpensive model of HCV micro-elimination in the hospital setting helped find anti-HCV-positive subjects with unknown anti-HCV status or not linked to a clinical center.
