According to the information available from the Australian Govt there are/were (latest update to site made in 2014) 747 Public and 612 Private Hospitals nationwide.
A wiki list of Australia's Hospitals is here en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_hospitals_in_Australia
Of those, Gastroenterological services are offered in the larger facilities and either Day Clinic Outpatient Services; or a Private Gastroenterologist running a private clinic within a Private Hospital is likely to be available for any HCV sufferer. There are also chains of Gastroenterological and Endo Specialist Clinics in Australia. Many are available to the HCV patient.
"It is estimated that 130-150 million people worldwide are chronically infected with hepatitis C. (WHO Hepatitis C Fact Sheet)
In Australia, it is estimated that 230,470 are living with chronic hepatitis C. (Kirby Institute, Annual Surveillance Report (ASR) 2015 - p12)" source: www.hepatitisaustralia.com/hepatitis-c-facts/about-hep-c
David Pieper states in response to the article
"Hep C sufferers’ ire at activist-website ban"
that: "there are over 13,000 of them who are delighted to have commenced treatment since March with drugs have been made available..." (On PBS)
FixHepC has assisted perhaps just under 2000 Australians I am supposing. That's since last year, with the data really coming in to the point where it's heard at EASL favourably. As a percentage of the diagnosed HCV patients in Australia just say at a rounded off guesstimate of 2000 treated via Fixhc I get roughly 0.8% of HCV in Oz treated, 95 ish % successfully and if retreating then aim for 100%
That's out of one Doctors personal practice. And without a magic political carpet ride.
So since the PBS in March, the percentage treated by the vast resources I outlined above in the hospitals paragraph, I get 5.2%
I say count the patients on PBS in any liver clinic on one hand, okay so maybe a thumb print short but close enough and I feel that from patients anecdotal observations.
Imagine if the generic argument became a non argument; based on this glaringly obvious data FixHepC actually convinced the World that generic DAAs are the only way to eradicate the virus in the firing line of big pharma and corporate greed and the political handshakes.
