Providing medical care for hepatitis C in Meerut

WHAT WE DO

Since January 2017, MSF has been implementing a pilot hepatitis C project in collaboration with National Health Mission (NHM), Uttar Pradesh. In the first phase of the project a hepatitis C clinic offering free care was established at the PL Sharma District Hospital in Meerut, Uttar Pradesh.

In addition to tests and treatment for hepatitis C, MSF provides health education and counselling services to patients. The project aims to demonstrate the feasibility of this district level simplified model of care, and to share best practices for replication in other high prevalence areas.
