As a part of our efforts to increase awareness and treatment of hepatitis C (HCV) and HIV co-infection, TREAT Asia/amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, is pleased to share a new policy brief outlining major clinical and advocacy issues entitled Hepatitis C and HIV: Addressing the Dual Epidemic.
The brief reviews the nature of hepatitis C infection, the impact of HIV on liver disease progression, why additional investments are needed to sustain and improve long-term programmatic and clinical outcomes, and summarizes advocacy priorities.
Although originally targeted towards local and regional policy makers and community advocates within the Asia-Pacific region, we hope it will be helpful to others working on similar agendas. You can find the brief at: http://bit.ly/TheDualEpidemic
