In this program, Ahmed M. Elsharkawy PhD, FRCP(UK), discusses the most-important barriers to effective hepatitis C virus (HCV) management in diverse ethnic populations, including both the community barriers that exist within populations affected by HCV and broad global healthcare barriers. As barriers are similar regardless of geographic region, Dr Elsharkawy offers practical solutions based on his experiences and on existing data to overcoming these difficulties both within the United States and globally.

Clinical Care Options (CCO) plans to measure the educational impact of this activity. A few questions will be asked twice: once before the discussion that informs the best choice and then again after the specific discussion. Your responses will be aggregated for analysis, and your specific responses will not be shared.
Before continuing with this educational activity, please take a moment to answer the following questions.
This slide shows an overall global perspective on the epidemiology of HCV.1
It is important for healthcare professionals (HCPs) managing HCV to understand global prevalence rates so a clearer understanding of HCV rates for various ethnic populations, especially first-generation immigrants, can be formed.
What is key to recognize is that prevalence may be different in your immigrant population than in your indigenous population.
