In this webinar, officials from the Centre for Communicable Diseases and Infection Control will discuss the findings from a scoping review, as reported by patients and healthcare providers. They will also discuss implications for reaching the estimated 44% of Canadians with a chronic hepatitis C viral infection who are unaware of their status.
