From 23 to 25 September 2010 Correlation organised a training on hepatitis C in Budapest. The aim of the training was to test the new training module, which has been developed by two experienced trainers from the United Kingdom, Dennis Morris and Neil Hunt. The 25 participants were selected based on a number of criteria, such as regional coverage, expertise in the issue and training experience ( train the trainers).
Each training day was concluded with an evaluation and feedback session. The trainers will use the feedback to modify and adjust the training module into a final version. The training methods include skill building sessions, interactive group and chat sessions and the use of video material. Target groups of the training can be policy makers, service providers and service users. The training addresses the following themes:
  • the liver and hepatitis C
  • HCV prevalence, course of infection and prevention
  • testing and monitoring
  • testing skills development
  • treatment options
  • treatment and quality access
  • side effects
  • lifestyle factors
  • co-infection with HIV
  • treatment quality, access, stigma and discrimination
  • advocacy and action planning
  • evaluation

Once the training module is finalized, it will be disseminated through the knowledge hub of the Eurasian Harm Reduction Network and the Correlation website. We intend to transform the tool into an online eLearning module in the future. The module will enable people to improve their knowledge and practice around optimal HCV treatment and care, review and evaluate latest evidence, relate this to their national situation and identify realistic, relevant and achievable priorities for action.

In addition, Correlation has organised a ‘policy dialogue’ meeting regarding hepatitis C and intravenous drug use in Hungary. Katrin Schiffer from Correlation opened the meeting, followed by Peter Portoro, the National coordinator on Drug Affairs, representing the Ministry of National Resources. Anna Tarjan, from the National Focal Point of Hungary highlighted the situation in Hungary and presented data and information regarding Hepatitis C. Ferenc Marvanykovi from the Hungarian Research Institute RIDS presented the results and outcomes of a HIV/HCV counselling programme, which has been carried out in Hungary in 2008. Xavier Major Roca from the Ministry of Health in Catalonia gave an overview of the various European policies in regard to HCV and highlighted the situation in the various countries. Rasa Ciceniene and Asta Minkeviciene presented the activities of the Eurasian Harm Reduction Network regarding hepatitis c and intravenous drug use in Eastern Europe. In conclusion, Eberhard Schatz from Correlation proposed the formation of a multi sectoral platform on hep C in Hungary.
