Beyond the C is led by ASHM (formerly the Australasian Society for HIV, Viral Hepatitis and Sexual Health Medicine).
‘National Hepatitis C 50,000 Project’ is a national initiative between primary care, community-based organisations, and researchers with the aim of finding the estimated 50,000 people living with hepatitis C who have not accessed treatment, support and care.
General Practices play a critical role in this program. We know that there are many Australians living with hepatitis C who have been tested in the past but have not proceeded to treatment, have disengaged from care, or have been lost to follow up.
The Beyond the C program follows on from the success of the Pilot Program which ran in 2021.
