This presentation will explore the impact and cost-effectiveness of simplified hepatitis C virus (HCV) diagnosis using a modelling approach. We developed a flexible mathematical model that can be applied in various contexts to evaluate different testing strategies, both standalone and integrated with simplified service delivery. The results aim to guide decision-makers in shaping effective HCV prevention policies and achieving elimination targets.
