Summary and objectives

The "Hepatitis C elimination in Morocco" program will strive to eliminate the burden of hepatitis C (HepC) on public health.

We aim to achieve our goals through education/awareness, testing, and affordable treatments. Our project is threefold:

1. Firstly, we will promote HepC testing in the general population through education and public awareness campaigns;

2. Secondly, we will evaluate to what extent HepC is underdiagnosed in the general population by conducting transversal epidemiological studies coupled with generalized testing in the study populations;

3. Thirdly, we will evaluate the efficacy of affordable direct-acting antiviral treatments in the afflicted population.

The program is therefore of broad biomedical significance.
