People most affected by hepatitis C are often best placed to respond to its impacts. The importance of continued cooperation and participation of those living with, at risk of, and affected by hepatitis C is recognised. Shared efforts to prevent further transmission and to provide quality treatment, care and support to those living with hepatitis C is integral to this strategy.
The priority population groups identified in this strategy are people:
- with hepatitis C
- who inject drugs
- in custodial settings
- from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds
- with hepatitis C with co-morbidities
