Seek and Treat: ‘From Swab to Tab’
In line with the goal of our National Hepatitis C Strategy towards the elimination of Hep C in our communities, Community Response in partnership with Coolmine, Chrysalis and the Mater Hospital are seeking to find the hidden thousands. This ambitious project, aims to overcome barriers to treatment by testing live across six community treatment projects. At risk groups will be offered a direct pathway to treatment and cure. On the day, attendees will be offered contemporary information around the transmission, testing and treatment of Hep C. Clients will be offered a direct and clear route to diagnosis and treatment, with agencies and key medical staff working in close partnership to provide integrated support across pathways.
The diagram below illustrates pathways to diagnosis and cure:
