Pursuing Elimination of Hepatitis C in Egypt: Cost-Effectiveness and Economic Evaluation of a Country-Wide Program

A health economic analysis, published in Infectious Diseases and Therapy, estimated the absolute and incremental impact of Egypt’s national HCV screening and treatment efforts on direct, indirect, and total healthcare costs.

The findings suggest that other country-specific HCV screening and elimination/treatment interventions should be explored to determine to what degree the outcomes seen in Egypt serve as a model to improve societal health outcomes while reducing the economic burden of HCV in other countries around the world.
