Abstract [en]

Cascade-of-care (CoC) monitoring is an important component of the response to the global hepatitis C virus (HCV) epidemic. CoC metrics can be used to communicate in simple terms the extent to which national and subnational governments are advancing on key targets, and CoC findings can inform strategic decision-making regarding how to maximize the progression of HCV-infected individuals to diagnosis, treatment and cure. The value of reporting would be enhanced if reporting entities utilized a standardized approach for generating their CoCs. We have described the Consensus HCV CoC that we developed to address this need and have presented findings from Denmark, Norway and Sweden, where it was piloted. We encourage the uptake of the Consensus HCV CoC as a global instrument for facilitating clear and consistent reporting via the World Health Organization (WHO) viral hepatitis monitoring platform and ensuring the accurate monitoring of progress toward WHO's 2030 hepatitis C elimination targets.
