For the third year in a row, the IOTOD conference dedicated an entire session to hepatitis C virus (HCV). The need for HCPs, especially those who work with people who use and inject drugs (PWUD/PWID), to be proactive about eliminating HCV was passionately emphasised throughout the session.In addition to this urgent call to action, the expert speakers provided the latest updates in the field and numerous evidence-based and pragmatic recommendations, demonstrating the feasibility and simplicity of curing HCV.

These nuanced and thought-provoking discussions earned the session, chaired by Professor Foster,overwhelmingly positive feedback, with many delegates committing to implement meaning full changes to their clinical practices. The IOTOD interactive technology showed an average of 87% committed to making a change that contributes to eliminating HCV.
