C Change – An Important New Resource for Patients

Nearly 75% of patients with hepatitis C remain uncured, and general practice is the first choice for treatment access. The new ‘C Change – Curing hep C‘ brochure provides patients with valuable information around treatment choices.

Irrespective of how patients may have contracted hepatitis C (pre-1990 transfusions and blood products, drug use, tattoos), most pre-cirrhotic patients are good candidates for GP treatment and cure.

Direct-acting antiviral (DAA) medications are covered under the PBS and:

  • Cure 95%+ of patients
  • Have minor side effects
  • Require just 8-12 weeks of oral meds
  • Now require no on-treatment monitoring

Most regions of NSW are underachieving the hepatitis C elimination targets. Hepatitis NSW urges general practices to help support roll out of hepatitis C cures.

Free supplies of the ‘C Change’ brochure are available across NSW.
