What is Hepatitis C?
An estimated 58 million people around the world live with the Hepatitis C virus (HCV). Although HCV is a curable disease, millions don't have access to proper treatment due to high prices, which leads to the death of hundreds of thousands each year as a result of liver complications. Pakistan suffers from the second highest rate of HCV infections in the world. Since 2015, MSF has been running a Hepatitis C programme in its clinic in Karachi’s Machar Colony informal settlement.
