Two major developments—the recommendation for birth cohort screening and the recent approval of all-oral treatment regimens—are poised to change the landscape of HCV patient care. This special conference brought together a distinguished faculty from around the world to discuss the pathogenesis,
diagnosis, and treatment of the disease.
Attendees were presented with new therapeutic options that can cure the vast majority of patients. Attendees left the conference with insights on global epidemiology, barriers to care, and potential solutions to improve global access to therapy.
- To evaluate the impact of new strategies for screening of hepatitis C in the United States and abroad
- To understand the changing global epidemiology of HCV infection
- To recognize the strengths and limitations of recently approved therapeutic regimens
- To evaluate new treatment regimens under development for HCV
- To recognize barriers to care and identify potential solutions to improve global access to new HCV therapies
This was designed for hepatologists, gastroenterologists, NPs/PAs, epidemiologists, pharmacists and others with an interest in hepatitis C epidemiology and therapy.
