Correlation Network – 
European Network Social Inclusion & Health

The Correlation Network works and contributes to an increased quality of life for vulnerable and marginalized groups in Europe. We are committed to marginalised groups, such as drug users, sex workers, migrants, MSM and young people in risk situations as well as people living with HIV and AIDS and other communicable deseases.  We aim to improve the access to and the quality of medical and social services and work for a social Europe, in which marginal and vulnerable groups
have a permanent place with the same (human) rights then everyone else.

Launched at an event in the European Parliament today, the ACHIEVE (short for Associations Collaborating on Hepatitis to Immunize and Eliminate the Viruses in Europe)

coalition calls on the EU to take action to eliminate viral hepatitis B and C by 2030 in the WHO European Region, in line with the WHO Global Health Sector Strategy on viral hepatitis, the WHO Europe Action Plan, which build on and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Correlation Network together with a number of partners

organised a Hepatitis C Community Summit in April 2017 in Amsterdam because this is a historic moment for hepatitis C treatment. With the advent of direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) we can now massively reduce the harm from an infectious disease that affects millions of people and causes hundreds of thousands of unnecessary deaths every year. Interferon-free DAA regimes are short, highly tolerable and simple to deliver, with cure rates of over 90%.

Hepatitis C elimination will on the one hand require an enormous scale-up in testing and treatment, along with comprehensive harm reduction services, including in prisons and on the other hand a sustained collaborative effort to combat the stigma, discrimination and criminalisation faced by people who inject drugs, and other priority communities, like migrants and men having sex with men.

Communities, harm reduction and community representatives must participate in formulating and implementing hepatitis C prevention, testing and treatment strategies because these stakeholders have unique knowledge about what will be accessible, acceptable and effective. Without their close ongoing involvement, the effort to eliminate hepatitis C is likely to fail.

The video highlights the most important aspects of the Community Summit and relevant topics to address for Hepatitis C elimination.

  • Develop and implement national action plans on a pilot scale in six European countries
  • Organise six national and a European CSI event

In the long rub, we aim to
  • Provide stakeholders with guidance to stimulate and support effective CSI.
  • Raise awareness on the relevance and importance of CSI on national and European levels.

HCV Community Summit

18-19 April in Amsterdam

Programme published

 

hepc summit amsterdamEradication of hepatitis C asks for Community Involvement
With the new medicines now available an opportunity exists to completely eradicate hepatitis C. However, it will require pharmaceutical companies, governments, doctors, and health purchasers to come together to ensure these medicines are quickly available to all. Also a crucial factor for success will be the involvement of people living with hepatitis C and well-resourced harm reduction services.

The summit will bring together experts and representatives to discuss the needs, gaps
and opportunities to make treatment available for all people in need. Also to present
community approaches for testing and treatment for HCV (and B) and to discuss/agree
on further community action and advocacy.

The summit will also reach out to attendees of the International Lever Congress, organised by EASL at the same time.

The SIT is an advanced chat tool, which is easily accesible and affordable, also for smaller organisations without large bugdets for internet outreach.
