Hepatitis C: The Fundamentals

Recent developments regarding new treatments have put Hepatitis C in the news. What do we know about Hepatitis C? How does it compare to other viruses in prevalence? How do you know if you have it?

NCSL is sponsoring a conference call Friday July 25th at 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Eastern to provide legislators and legislative staff with basic and fundamental information about the hepatitis C virus.  We are fortunate to have renowned Gastroenterologist Guy W. Neff M.D., the Medical Director, HCV at AbbVie and Coy A. Stout, Vice President of Managed Markets at Gilead to provide briefing and to answer your questions.

Are there policy questions regarding Hepatitis C and associated treatments for this virus? Absolutely, and we plan to address policy issues in a follow-up call in the next several weeks.  This is an introduction to Hepatitis C.  We hope to provide a snapshot of how the condition impacts communities and who in a community is most at risk. We hope you will be able to join us.  We promise not to keep you more than one hour!

Here are the call details:
