The roadmap to eliminating hepatitis C in Ontario

The Ontario Hepatitis C Elimination Roadmap is guiding policy and practice action to end hepatitis C as a public health threat by 2030. The roadmap is a collaborative, multi-sector initiative led by hepatitis C experts with contributions from clinicians, community, government and more.

This webinar will share an overview of the roadmap, including key priorities and strategies for how we can carry out its recommendations in Ontario. We’ll be joined by a panel of experts that includes leaders from health systems, clinical practice, community organizations and priority populations. Our panel will discuss the current landscape of hepatitis C in Ontario, opportunities and challenges, as well as the path towards elimination.

Hepatitis C is among the most burdensome infectious diseases in Ontario. However, an effective cure, widespread testing and proven prevention strategies mean elimination is within reach.
