INPUD's International Diaries

 Hi everyone, this is a very interesting article doing the rounds at INPUD at the moment about Hepatitis C and the new drug treatments available. It is about treatment costs, but it is also about discrimination as the question has changed from ‘can we cure?’ to ‘who should we cure first?’.  Commenting on the article INPUD’s executive Director Eliot Albers says  “It is good to see a human rights framework being introduced into considerations about allocation of HCV treatment and rejecting the frequently cited reasons for not treating people who inject drugs”.
 
Please note: The blogger here has taken a small liberty to include subheadings of my choosing in order to ease reading, headings which are of course, not in the full article.
