Hepatitis C brief reports

Burnet Institute is working towards the achievement of the World Health Organization’s hepatitis C elimination targets in Australia and globally.

These policy briefs are designed to explain key findings of our work clearly and provide recommendations for government, community organisations and policymakers alike.

Our work includes

  • Constructing models to enable optimal resource allocation to meet strategic objectives, such as determining the best use of public health resources and infrastructure to minimise new infections or deaths.
  • Collaborating on programs relating to health promotion, education, community-based treatment including nurse-led models of care and implementation science, research and surveillance.
  • Building strong partnerships with research organisations, governments, the community and affected populations.
  • Conducting ground-breaking biomedical research, such as developing point of care diagnostics and vaccine development.

Read more about our published work within these brief reports - which summarise key findings and translate these into policy implications and recommendations.
