The US preventive services task force is inviting public comments about a draft recommendation statement on Hepatitis C virus infection screening between the ages of 18 to 79 years.
Hepatitis C virus infection is a leading cause of hepatitis, liver cirrhosis and liver transplant. With early diagnosis and treatment, complications of hepatitis C infection are preventable.
America’s health guidelines lead the way in global health. The outcome of this recommendation will impact the way the rest of the world implements screening for hepatitis C infection.
