Elimination of HCV from the HIV positive population within Australia

Back to search results
Recent advances in HCV therapies have led to the real hope of elimination of HCV infections from targeted populations. This idea of ‘micro-elimination’ is an exciting future challenge. The Control and Elimination of HCV from HIV people within Australia (CEASE) project aims to evaluate progress towards this goal within a large Australian cohort of HIV-HCV individuals (n=500) followed through provision of universal HCV treatment access. CEASE will provide data to influence global elimination policy. The PhD student will lead academic outputs relating to treatment uptake and outcomes, reinfection incidence, remaining barriers to treatment access and changes in risk behaviour.
