Proposed Recommendations for the Identification of HCV Chronic Infection Among Persons Born during 1945 through 1965
CDC is requesting public comment on Proposed Recommendations for the Identification of HCV Chronic Infection Among Persons Born during 1945 through 1965 (hereinafter referred to as the Recommendations). CDC has developed the proposed Recommendations to increase the proportion of persons with HCV infection who are aware of their infection and who receive appropriate clinical care and preventive services to prevent the long term sequelae of HCV. The comment period will extend from May 22, 2012 through June 8,2012.
CDC is seeking public comment on these Recommendations, particularly concerning the following questions:
b. the number of persons living with HCV who are unaware of their infection status?
c. the benefits and harms of HCV testing, care and treatment?
d. the cost effectiveness of the proposed recommendations?
e. settings in a community where testing should be targeted?
2) Are there other factors, e.g., other scientific studies not referenced, which should be considered in the development of the Recommendations?
3) Are there any other comments about the utility of the information?
