ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the need for a proactive public health response for a potential for near universal curability of hepatitis C virus (HC) infection. It relates the number of Canadians with chronic HCV. Some of the causes of HCV infections include injection drug use, high-risk sexual practices and receipt of unscreened blood products. It discusses the two main groups affected by HCV infections in North America namely aging baby boomers and individuals who engage in high-risk activities.
