Well today might mark a new stage in the whole Hepatitis C treatment narrative. Our local newspaper The Sunday Tasmanian has done an in depth story on my journey with Hep C and the whole frustrating treatment dilemma facing folk with Hep C. The medication is out there but too expensive for most folk to access.
I am hoping that the Sunday Tasmanian story will get some traction in the National and International news media and that it will stimulate some serious debate about prices and access to the new generation of Hepatitis C drugs and treatment options.
And hopefully that will cause the big international pharmaceutical companies to re-think their pricing policies and make the drug available to everyone who needs it.
