SONDERUP, M W. The global elimination of hepatitis C?. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2018, vol.108, n.8, suppl.1, pp.31-34. ISSN 2078-5135.

Multiple efforts will be required to achieve this through identifying patients currently infected and preventing further transmission through rapid linkage to treatment while a vaccine remains tenaciously elusive.
