WASHINGTON — In this video, John Ward, MD, director of the Coalition for Global Hepatitis Elimination at the CDC Taskforce for Global Health, discusses the need for a national commitment to a hepatitis C elimination program.

According to Ward, who spoke with Healio at The Liver Meeting, a newly established coalition detailed plans to eradicate HCV through an enhanced testing and treatment program, which will not only save lives but also billions of dollars in health care costs.

“I think this is a golden opportunity to have a national hepatitis elimination program that will improve the lives of Americans and demonstrate to other countries what’s possible for their citizens,” Ward said.
