Successfully assisting for re-treatment of HCV

On 2nd of April 2024, we came across a person who use drugs who had completed his HCV treatment in November 2021with Sofosbuvir 400 mg & daclatasvir 60 mg for 12 weeks. Later he found that the treatment had failed while doing his SVR 12 test. But unfortunately, he was not really bothered about possible re-treatment due to his drug use behaviour.

Action Taken: Our data collectors explained the respondent on initiating his re-treatment and the importance of HCV treatment timely. His HCV RNA test was repeated as per the advice of the Medical Officer, Model Treatment Center, JNIMS and other clinical baseline test were done as per the guideline of national program. His re-treatment was initiated on 22 nd of May with Sofosbuvir/velpatasvir for 12 weeks.
