The number of patients treated for Hepatitis C declines by 15% in the EURO region in 2016

The number of treated patients declined in multiple EURO countries over the last year. In 2015, it was estimated that approximately 175,000 patients were treated, while this number decreased by about 25,000 to 150,000 total treated in 2016. The number of treated patients declined in about 15 EURO countries, while Lithuania, Poland, and the UK expanded treatment over the past year. According to the Polaris Observatory, 13.5 million individuals, or 1.5% of the EURO population is chronically infected with HCV in 2017.
