INTRODUCTION In the light of the advances in HCV antiviral therapy, global control of HCV infection becomes feasible but depends on the capacity of countries to identify infected people and to offer them treatment. To achieve the WHO goal which targets a diagnosis rate of 90% by 2030, simplification of screening and diagnosis will be crucial. METHODS Published literature, unpublished data and expert consensus were used to determine key parameters, including point-of-care, rapid diagnostic… CONTINUE READING
