Working together to eliminate HCV

 

In the Netherlands, most new Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections are diagnosed in (HIV positive) MSM. Finding infections fast and preventing (re-)infections is essential to reach our goal. MC Free connects the needs of the community with scientific knowledge and care. The collaboration with the community is a central part of MC Free.

The MC Free approach

 

MC Free intervenes on different levels to fight the HCV epidemic among MSM in Amsterdam. We develop interventions for MSM aimed at increasing knowledge of HCV transmission, risk reduction and test strategies. Next to that we conduct research on transmission dynamics through advanced phylogenetic techniques and provide training for professionals involved in HIV, HCV and STI care.
