Action Hepatitis Canada has released a new report: Prison Health is Public Health: The Right to Hepatitis C Prevention, Diagnosis, and Care in Canada’s Correctional Settings. People who are incarcerated (PWAI) are identified as a priority population for HCV care, as they are 40 times more likely to be exposed to HCV than Canada’s general population. In addition, people who are released from incarceration often face barriers to accessing health care in the community. The delivery of HCV care to people in correctional settings in Canada is not only a human right, it is essential to HCV elimination.
Join AHC for a webinar for AHC members and allies, to review this new report and discuss how it can be used as an advocacy tool with policymakers.April 12.
