Prof. Jean-Michel Pawlotsky, MD, PhD is a Professor of Medicine at the University of Paris-Est., Director of the National Reference Center for Viral Hepatitis B, C, and D, Director of the Department of Virology at the Henri Mondor University Hospital in Créteil France, Director of the Academic Department Viruses, Immunity, and Cancers.

 

Abstract

How do you eliminate a disease that 95% of people don’t know they have? 

Hepatitis C is called a silent killer because it often goes unnoticed for decades until serious liver damage has occurred. Diagnosing infected individuals is the first step in preventing the spread of Hepatitis C to others, in linking patients to curative therapies, and in driving overall awareness.

A healthier future without Hepatitis C is now possible, through innovations in science and technology. Watch the educational webinar to learn how clinical laboratory advancements can help make elimination a reality.

 

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss the importance of the clinical laboratory in reaching the World Health Organization’s elimination goals
  • Understand recent guideline advancements that support Hepatitis C elimination
  • Describe simplified diagnostic processes that support improved access to care
