France assesses population's hepatitis C status:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

A pilot screening project has been set up in general practitioner practices in four areas in France, to assess levels of hepatitis C infection in the population. The project's main objectives are to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of different screening strategies and to identify the risk factors so that carriers may be more easily identified before establishing a general screening plan. According to Lettre CNAM, the national insurer's newsletter, it is estimated that 1% of the French population are carriers of hepatitis C and only 20% of these are aware of their status.
