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.
