Worldwide, more Hepatitis C patients have been treated with generic medication than the overpriced branded medication.

Over 90% of patients who have treatment will achieve SVR12 and the data has been presented at the International Liver Congress.

YOU CAN SAFELY ACCESS GENERIC MEDICATION VIA THE REDEMPTION TRIALS

#love For more than a year I came as a guest to this site to read the posts. I couldn't see my way to actually getting the treatment. It took months to make up my mind to act. The greatest barrier was disclosing to having HCV. That is because I am a healthcare worker and have seen others with HVC (who like me have roles in which transmission is impossible) negatively discriminated against in our workplace.

After disclosing the HCV to my family doctor who urged me to see a specialist the hepatologist in turn organised a fibroscan. That fibroscan showed little cirrhosis and the liver function test (scan & tests all free thanks the New Zealand taxpayer-funded healthcare system) results within normal boundaries. Possibly these good results because of avoiding alcohol, smoking and other drugs as part of trying to maintain good health. Also genotype 2 is the most benign type of HCV. Maybe though I was just lucky.

Once I received all the test results I enrolled in Redemption trials. Now I am on treatment and wondering why it took me so long.

Hello Mnem,

Like you I am a healthcare worker from NZ who had hep c so I can truly appreciate and identify with the implications, stress and stigma you experienced when you first found out. For those of you that are unaware healthcare workers (in most instances) have to disclose their status of a communicable disease to their employer and worse still may face having to be stood down from their role. Stigma surrounding HCV in healthcare is as ever present as it is anywhere - and in some cases much worse.

In November 2015 I first found out about generic treatment and in December I flew to Tasmania to collect a 12 week course of sof/led. I finished treatment in Feb 2016 and I was still detectable however I went undetected 4 weeks post treatment and have remained that way since reaching SVR 24 in early August.

I want to wish you all the best and every success for your journey and go you for getting off the fence and taking matters into your own hands. I hope your hepatologist are being supportive with your choice...If not please refer them to the NZ Hepatitis Foundation as they endorse the use of generics sourced via Fix Hep C, there are also many articles/features in the Talking Hep C publication that take doctors and specialist through the generic pathway.
SVR 24

Great choice, you'll be HCV free in a few months. The stigma of HCV over rides the excitement of the cure, to other people. I had only shared it with wife of 26-7 years :) so it was bitter sweet. Keep on keep' n on you'll get it done
In good health to you.

Hi Mnem,

The stigma of this disease can be such a burden and I can relate to the stress placed on people in healthcare and similar industries. Well done you for taking control and starting treatment. Good luck - things are lined up for a great outcome for you. #flower

Hi Margie, yes help is at hand. #flower Keep looking for the right threads on this site. There is a search function on one of the tabs at the top. Also the index tab. Take a look at the link in this piece (re.) posted by our fellow Forum member, Iain recently:

A nice article written by Lucinda Porter regarding importing generic HCV medication to the U.S.A, and FixHepC.

Apologies if this has already been posted previously.
