We’re working on an affordable cure, says D-G


PETALING JAYA: The Health Ministry has acknowledged that the treatment for Hepatitis C is very expensive and it is collaborating with other partners to find an affordable cure.

In 2015, only 7% of the 71 million people worldwide with chronic Hepatitis C had access to the expensive treatment. The treatment comprised new oral direct acting antivirals taken for three to six months, said Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah.
