HCV Advocacy Workshop

On 25-26 August 2022, a two-day hybrid workshop was organized by the Hepatitis C PACT* LATAM in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, including participation of civil society organizations representatives from Argentina (FGEP), Brazil (MBHV, UAEM) and Colombia (IFARMA).

The event focused on mapping HCV treatment and diagnostics scale-up landscape in LATAM and designed a plan of action for treatment and diagnostics uptake, tailored to the needs of focus countries, promoting actions to explore/activate regional opportunities and include engagement with regional and global related activities and timelines.

* The Hepatitis C Partnership for Control and Treatment (Hepatitis C PACT) is a joint collaboration of Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF); Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative (DNDi); FIND, the global alliance for diagnostics; and Treatment Action Group (TAG).
