Hepatitis C in the UK: 2008 report - Health Protection Agency

2008's report details the action being taken at a local and national level to tackle hepatitis C across the United Kingdom (UK). Since the Agency's first annual hepatitis report for England, published in 2005, government action plans have been published in all countries of the UK. Each of the plans reflects the different priorities and concerns of that country, taking into consideration the differing systems for service delivery and the level of local accountability versus national coordination within each country. The countries are at different stages of implementation but all share common goals. We outline here the common major achievements and aspirations that are shared across the UK.
