Virology

For so many, hepatitis C can now be cured,* but there’s a lot more work to do. We’re moving fast and working hard to help eliminate hepatitis C globally by the 2030 World Health Organization deadline.

Leaving No Patient Behind

The hepatitis C virus was once a hard to treat, chronic disease. Now we can fight the disease in specific genotypes with treatments such as direct-acting antivirals, but it will take both science and society to make elimination possible for all patients. We’re working to remove barriers that prevent people from getting care, with the goal of helping reduce new infections by 90 percent over the next 11 years. 

Our Commitment to Elimination

Solving complex challenges takes more than a one-size-fits-all approach. Together with the hepatitis C community, we aim to find sustainable solutions that move us closer to a world free of hepatitis C.

*Cure means the hepatitis C virus is not detectable in the blood months after treatment ends.
