  According to Director Li Mingyang of China Liver Health, the China Hepatitis C Elimination Alliance Public Welfare Project was launched on Sep. 3rd, 2017 at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, led by Academician Zhuang Hui (a well-known liver disease expert, professor from Peking University Health Science Center, and honorary chairman of China Liver Health) and Prof. Wei Lai (the sixth chairman of the Chinese Medical Association, director of Liver Diseases Institute of Peking University, and the president of China Liver Health). The project received guidance from the World Health Organization, the Ministry of Civil Affairs, the Department of Disease Control under National Health Commission and Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention and also received active cooperation and support from local governments.
  Up to November 2018, the project has carried out over 10 rounds of dialogues on including hepatitis C drugs into medical insurance list in Shaanxi, Anhui, Jilin, Hunan, Fujian and other provinces, trained over 1,200 liver disease doctors from primary health care institutions and conducted screening for hepatitis C infection for 6252 people. It greatly enhanced basic-level governments’ understanding, attention and confidence in eliminating hepatitis C, improved the willingness of the public, especially those high risk groups, to actively receive detection and treatment, and improved diagnosis and treatment level of liver disease doctors at primary health care institutions.

  Director Li said that oral DAAs for hepatitis C had been included into local medical insurance list in different ways in Zhejiang, Jilin, Tianjin, Anhui, Shandong and other provinces and cities. As this policy took root in more provinces and cities, there was hope that those 10 million people infected with hepatitis C virus in China would be completely cured and bear a smaller burden.

Background Information
  Viral hepatitis C, hepatitis C for short, is a disease transmitted through blood and sexual contact, which can progress into serious diseases such as liver fibrosis, cirrhosis, liver cancer, etc., causing a serious disease burden to society and families. Hepatitis C can be completely cured by oral DAAs. In China, there are 10 million people infected with hepatitis C virus. Most of them have not been tested and effectively treated due to the insidious onset, insufficient attention from patients and high expenses of drugs.
