Naturally, this program is based on the political will and very active involvement of the Georgian government. The C Hepatitis Elimination Program is a very important project that enables to reach genuinely good and positive results. It is really available to heal all patients, including, drugs injective users. But this process requires not only individual treatment, but also other preventive and intervention measures and strategies, for example, the program of syringes, therapy for replacing opioids and upgrading the screening level. These three strategies will enable to implement very important and ambitious plans in Georgia”.- noted Dr. Stanislas Pol.
