How Stigma and Socioeconomic Barriers Impede HCV Care: Conversations Between Patient and Physician

This episode features a conversation between a patient, Alicia, and Oluwaseun Falade-Nwulia, MBBS, MPH, who discuss how stigma in the medical system toward marginalized populations, including people who inject drugs or who have a history of injection drug use, prevents access to HCV care.

Released: April 20, 2022

In this episode, Oluwaseun Falade-Nwulia, MBBS, MPH, and a patient with previous injection drug use who has been cured of HCV infection discuss critical barriers that are preventing more people with current or previous injection drug use from receiving appropriate HCV care.

This insightful discussion underscores the negative effects of stigma toward people who inject drugs that exist in many clinical settings, the important role that socioeconomic factors such as transportation access and stable housing play in preventing access to HCV care, the effects of insufficient staffing at many addiction treatment centers, and the need for creative solutions to overcome these barriers.
