Australian Government breaks silence on Hep C Inquiry

Hepatitis Australia, November 10, 2016

The Australian Government tabled its response to the Silent Disease – Inquiry into hepatitis C in Australia yesterday, but commits to little.  The Silent Disease Report was released by the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Health during June 2015 after extensive consultation with health experts, community organisations and people affected by hepatitis C.

In its response, the Government has fully agreed with just three of the ten recommendations in the report.
