Here for a Hep C-Free Louisiana
Together, we can eliminate Hepatitis C in Louisiana over the next five years. It’s going to take ambition, and it’s going to take a collective impact, but it can be done. The Elimination Plan coordinated by the Louisiana Department of Health involves a combination of testing and treatment to target the roughly 40,000 people in our state with a probable or confirmed case of Hepatitis C.
There’s a pill to cure Hepatitis C, and it’s free for Medicaid-eligible and incarcerated persons for the next five years. After an initial screening, the treatment takes just 12 weeks and a follow-up test to be sure of the cure.
