Practical Toolkit for Building a Successful Partnership with High-Risk Hepatitis C Patients

Is your team struggling to engage high-risk patients in hepatitis C virus (HCV) care?

This toolkit contains step-by-step guides to facilitate overcoming stigma and increasing patient engagement in HCV screening, treatment, and self-care, as well as a brief overview of HCV treatment for key groups, including people who inject drugs (PWID), men who have sex with men (MSM), people who are incarcerated, and migrants. These practical tools have been vetted by renowned European HCV experts and are designed for use in primary care clinics, drug treatment centres, medically supervised injecting centres, street-based outreach programmes, and criminal justice settings.
