Presentation synopsis:

Micro-elimination of HCV – a reality?

Reaching global targets for elimination of viral hepatitis will require a range of interventions with strong political and financial support. Micro-elimination is an attractive part of a wider elimination strategy and the talk will describe how its application to HIV populations can contribute to overall elimination efforts, with a focus on data from a UK setting.
