Windows of Opportunity: Integrated Hepatitis C Programming Approaches for Priority Populations


Limitations of the deliberative dialogue

Participants acknowledged several important limitations of the deliberative dialogue.

Though the intention of the deliberative dialogue was to discuss different approaches to integrated hepatitis C care for priority populations, there was insufficient time to discuss all models and/or all priority populations. In particular, no Indigenous-led models were formally presented, only models led by non-Indigenous peoples working with Indigenous populations. Indigenous-led models were shared by meeting participants in the discussion sections, but not in the formal presentation sections.

In addition, no models for people in prison were presented, and there was no representation from groups or organizations working inside prisons.
