Hepatitis C elimination in Morocco
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.
