Models of care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are another currently under-served population with a higher prevalence rate of HCV. Models of care that are centred in facilities close to home, involve local trusted providers and provide culturally competent care using best-practice protocols are likely to increase HCV treatment uptake in this population. Education and training of local clinicians with linkage to expert providers is an important priority.
