    Hepatitis C has become “curable” for >90% of those infected. But while universal HCV elimination is medically possible, this goal is compromised by certain populations who remain underscreened, undertreated, and underserved and continue to spread the virus. One such population is people who inject drugs (PWID).   

    In this issue, Dr. Brianna Norton and Dr. Matthew Akiyama from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine analyze the most important data to explain how substance use impacts adherence and the risk of HCV reinfection.

    Clinical Insight: Engaging PWID in HCV Care

    People who inject drugs (PWID) comprise a rapidly growing population of HCV-infected people who have historically been difficult to reach and treat. But without engagement in HCV care, PWID will continue to transmit the virus and impede efforts for hepatitis C eradication.

    In this issue, Dr. Arthur Kim from Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School provides a clinical perspective on identifying and overcoming the barriers that prevent PWID from effectively receiving HCV treatment.
