Dr Doyle’s project will comprehensively assess the burden of hepatitis C in Victorian prisons, including incidence, prevalence and re-infection.

The study is important in evaluating the impact of hepatitis C treatment on transmission, as well as prevention benefits as a result of expanded treatment access in Victorian prisons.

This follows the Victorian Government’s decision in April last year to choose St Vincent’s to establish a statewide network of hepatitis clinics at Victorian prisons.
