Cost-Effectiveness of Hepatitis C Testing Pathways in Georgia
Nature have published a study aiming to evaluate the long-term cost-effectiveness of different HCV testing pathways in Georgia. The cost of testing can be a substantial contributor to HCV elimination program costs in many low‑ and middle‑income countries such as Georgia, resulting in the need for innovative and cost‑effective strategies for testing.
Conclusion: The current testing algorithm in Georgia can be replaced with a new pathway that is more effective while being cost-saving.
