The “New rights” party is asking for creating a state policy program of the Hepatitis C as soon as possible.

A statement about it was made by the leader of the party David Gamkrelidze on a press-conference held today.

He said according to the new program the state should fully finance diagnostics of hepatitis C; treatment of at least 2000 patients per year should be financed from Budget; Production of the generic of Interferon should be launched in Georgia. 

According to Gamkrelidze, also, a program of liver transplantation should be created and financed in the country and strict control should be established over sterilization rules in clinics and all institutions, where risk of being infected by Hepatitis C is high.

Party leaders say the situation in Georgia is quite alarming and the immediate measures have to be taken to address the problem.

„ Today, when Hepatitis C has turned to be one of the alarming diseases in the world and by its topicality surpassed AIDS and tumors, there is no State program existing in Georgia to prevent and cure this perfidious illness. Moreover, none of the insurance policies cover diagnostics and antiviral treatment, or even hepatotropic therapy of Hepatitis C”, - Gamkrelidze said.
