HCV in prisons: Targeting elimination

In the battle to eliminate HCV as a public health threat by 2030, prison healthcare is at the forefront.

This webinar, developed and hosted by Alchemie Medical Education, part of the Obsidian Group, brings together three international experts who lead prison-based HCV elimination programmes to share their in-depth knowledge and first-hand experience.

Through four presentations and a panel discussion, the faculty will guide you through the key things to consider when setting up HCV testing and treatment programmes in custodial settings, review international best practice and share inspiring success stories that have yielded real-world results.
