Seattle Times, September 28, 2018
The governor of Washington, Gov. Jay Inslee signed a directive aimed to eradicate hepatitis C in the state by 2030. The statewide hep C elimination plan is a collaborative approach involving agencies, tribal governments, and other local public-health officials that could also save the state money. There are an estimated 65,000 people living with the hepatitis C virus in Washington. In July of this year, Governor Cuomo of New York announced plans to eliminate hepatitis C in that state. Other small-scale elimination plans are in place or gearing up across the country, including San Francisco.
