That is a huge price difference between H.I.V antivirals and Hep C treatments! It is highly unfair that there are treatments and people cannot access them.

Movement for global access to hepatitis C treatment building momentum

Access to hepatitis C treatment in low- and middle-income countries is being restricted by the high cost of interferon and a lack of commitment to treating the disease, leading to a growing gap between the prospects of patients in the wealthiest nations and the rest of the world, advocates reported at the 48th International Liver Congress (EASL 2013) in Amsterdam last month.
