Burnet Kirby Report Launch: Australia’s progress towards hepatitis C elimination

Join us for the launch of the third annual Australia’s progress towards hepatitis C elimination report, jointly published by the Burnet and Kirby Institutes.

Australia is working to eliminate hepatitis C as a public health threat by 2030. This report compiles key data to provide an overview of our progress toward this important goal.

The report brings together data from 19 sources and provides an overview of progress towards hepatitis C elimination in key areas including: trends in new infections, testing and diagnosis, treatment uptake and outcomes, morbidity, stigma and discrimination, primary prevention, equity, mathematical and economic modelling. The 2021 report has updated and new data on hepatitis C indicators among priority populations, and highlights the urgent need to improve the rates of testing and treatment if Australia is to stay on track and meet its elimination goals.

Highlights of the report will be presented alongside an opportunity to ask questions and discuss the dissemination of the report in the sector and beyond to optimise its utility.
