Patient-Centred Models of Hepatitis C Treatment for PWID

To achieve World Health Organization targets for the elimination of hepatitis C virus (HCV) as a public threat, an increased uptake of HCV treatment among people who inject drugs (PWID) is urgently needed. Optimal HCV co-located treatment models for PWID have not yet been identified.

A study, published in The Lancet Gastroenterology & Hepatology, compared two patient-centred models of HCV care in PWID with active drug use at eight US cities in eight opioid treatment programmes and 15 community health centres.
