CTAC is delighted to have launched a campaign to eliminate hepatitis C in Canada and are asking for everyone to endorse their message at ctac.ca/EliminateHepC.
We believe the time has come to eliminate hepatitis C – a curable disease which 220,000 – 245,000 Canadians are infected with. Unfortunately, around 44% of those individuals are unaware of their status. Our government has signed up to the World Health Organisation’s target to eliminate viral hepatitis as a public health threat by 2030 – but if we carry on the same path this will not be achieved.
Please visit www.ctac.ca/EliminateHepC to endorse our campaign and read our seven calls to action, taken from our the executive summary of our white paper The time has come to eliminate hepatitis C in Canada.
