First 30 patients assisted with hepatitis C treatment
  30/6/2017 8:22:59 PM
The patients only have to pay about VND23 million instead of over VND70 million as before.

The Hai Duong Provincial HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control Center on June 28 examined, counseled, screened, and distributed medicine to 30 patients registering for hepatitis C treatment.

Those are the first out of 150 patients registering for support from the project "Enhancing access to hepatitis C treatment for chronic hepatitis C and hepatitis C and HIV co-infected patients."

The patients will be examined, screened, and treated with orally-administered drugs in place of previous injections.

Within the framework of the project, the patients only have to pay about VND23 million instead of over VND70 million as before.

As surveyed by the National Hospital of Tropical Diseases, the rate of patients recovering thanks to the new treatment has risen to 95%, and the treatment duration has been decreased from 42 weeks to 12 weeks.

In the coming time, the health sector will reach agreement with the social insurance sector on a proposal for direct payment to the HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control Center from the health insurance fund to implement testing items.
