Health technology assessment of birth cohort testing for hepatitis C: a short report update

Health Information and Quality Authority
Record ID 32018012009
Authors' results and conclusions: Our original assessment noted that an initial pilot programme would be beneficial to confirm the prevalence of chronic HCV infection. New studies suggest that this prevalence is lower than previously reported. Following on from publication of the original HTA in 2021, a short update has been published in 2024 reflecting the impact of more recent data.
