EC Australia November Webinar Series: Webinar 4

Chair: Dr Anna Wilkinson

Presenters: Professor Margaret Hellard AM (Burnet Institute), Professor Gregory Dore (Kirby Institute), Ms Jude Byrne (Australian Injecting and Illicit Drug Users League) and Ms Carrie Fowlie (Hepatitis Australia)

The final webinar in the series will launch the second annual ‘Australia’s progress towards hepatitis C elimination’ report, jointly published by the Burnet and Kirby Institutes.

The report brings together data from over 20 sources and provides an overview of progress towards hepatitis C elimination in key areas including; trends in new infections, testing and diagnosis, treatment uptake and outcomes, morbidity, stigma and discrimination, primary prevention, equity, and mathematical modelling.

The 2020 report has updated data and new data sources, but also highlights some ongoing gaps in our understanding of progress towards elimination.

Highlights of the report will be presented alongside an opportunity to ask questions and discuss the dissemination of the report in the sector and beyond to optimise its utility.
