This month’s Connecting Care episode is the first in a two-part series about treatment for Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) among people with opioid use disorder. In this first podcast, the Boston Medical Team discusses new HCV treatment options, policy and cost considerations, and novel venues and approaches to deliver HCV treatment to people who inject drugs.
We sometimes present these medications as - I mean I think I’ve used the word “miracle” already on this podcast - as you know, an easy cure and incredibly effective, and that is so true. AND it is also true that if people don’t have the other resources that they need to support themselves, to manage risk, to reduce harms, these medications will not have the impact that they could have. -- Dr. Jessica Taylor
