On July 4, the National Center for Disease Control and Public Health hosted an event on behalf of the C Hepatitis Elimination Program. The event was attended by many international experts from France.
Expert Yazdan Yazdanpanah, professor of Paris Medical School talks with media:
In Georgia, 30% of drug users are diagnosed with C hepatitis. The ratio of other patients is about 20%.
“The Georgian Health Ministry has introduced a wonderful initiative in the form of the C Hepatitis Elimination Program. This burden of this disease is very high in Georgia and we should know this disease is a system curable disease. Naturally, these efficient medications will heal patients and in general, this program will be useful for the Georgia People. Indeed, I would like to note this is the first stage and Georgia performs the function of the so-called excellent country, but in the future, this will be very important for the scientific society that has been supervising this process from the international level. This program is based on a political will and it will become a precondition for many other important opportunities”.-Said Professor Yazdanpanah
