Nurse-Led Micro-Elimination of Hepatitis C in Supported Housing Sites for Networks of PWID in Canada

Achieving the World Health Organization’s goal of eliminating hepatitis C (HCV) by 2030 requires enhanced HCV testing and treatment among people who inject drugs (PWID). Micro-elimination of HCV is a strategy to target HCV testing and treatment efforts to specific segments of the population.

A study, published in Public Health Nursing, described a nurse-led micro-elimination approach of hepatitis C in supported housing sites for networks of PWID in Victoria, Canada.
