Abstract

Aim. To analyze the world experience in countering viral hepatitis C as a component of developing programs to increase the availability of pharmaceutical care grouping countries by their level of economic development and belonging to the WHO region.

Materials and methods. The study materials were statistical reports of the WHO, national reports of countries on the prevalence, morbidity, and measures to counteract hepatitis C, as well as reports of the Polaris global study. Desk-based research methods, such as content analysis, systematic, logical, as well as methods of comparative analysis and generalization, were used.
