The aim of the HCV elimination model is to allow users to investigate the relative value of different routes towards the
WHO Hepatitis C incidence and mortality elimination targets. Based on a previously published and validated disease transmission model that has been cited over 150 times in the peer-reviewed
]. The model calls upon the most recent literature on trends in both HCV prevalence across multiple strata
of society and risky behaviors known to drive Hep C infection such as injection drug use, and estimates time to elimination
based on treatment reach and access and take-up of treatment options in a combined population of a general, PWID and prison sub-populations.
It also can be used to estimate the combinations of these inputs for a particular elimination goal.
