Hepatitis C Virus Projections Working Group: Estimates and Projections of the Hepatitis C Virus Epidemic in Australia 2006
To plan an appropriate public health response to the hepatitis C virus (HCV) epidemic in Australia, both in terms of preventive measures and treatment needs, good estimates and projections of the rates of HCV infection and its long term sequelae are required. To achieve this, the Hepatitis C Virus Projections Working Group was first formed in 1998, and reformed in 2002, under the auspices of, and reporting to, the Australian National Council on AIDS and Related Diseases (ANCARD) Hepatitis C Sub-Committee.
