Abstract

With direct-acting antiviral (DAA) therapy for 8–12 weeks established as the standard-of-care for most people with chronic hepatitis C (HCV), the optimal management of acute and recent HCV is under evaluation. Whether acute HCV will continue to offer a unique therapeutic advantage over chronic HCV in regard to shorter DAA duration, as was the case with interferon-based treatment, is the subject of ongoing clinical trials. Enhanced screening, diagnosis and management of acute and recent HCV will be required if we are to reduce HCV incidence and achieve WHO HCV elimination targets.
