It’s estimated that 50,000 Kiwis are living with the hepatitis C virus (HCV). The hepatitis C and MAVIRET awareness initiative will consist of television and digital advertising encouraging people who know or suspect
they have hepatitis C to talk to their doctor or nurse. The awareness initiative starts the second week of September.
In readiness, please refer to “Hepatitis C treatment with Maviret – brief advice for Prescribers” attached.
