Hepatitis C: A global and local health challenge for Georgia.

Tiko Tsomaia

The Commercialization or privatization of public healthcare services in Georgia, amounts into an increase in health disparities, in particular for poor and middle income population. Therefore, availability and accessibility to diagnosis and treatment are not assured. Georgia has twice as higher (6,7%) than average European rate (3 %) for HCV infection – in absolute numbers an estimated 200,000 persons have it. State programs don’t cover cost of diagnosis and treatment which amounts to 20-65,000 USD, whole burden of the disease lies on the patients and their families. Because of the not existing national policy on hepatitis C there is a high risk of spread of the infection.
This paper will also explain how human right such as the right to participation and the right to information, if realized, becomes important mechanism to press government to find possibilities and solutions to assure Georgian citizens access to adequate health care.
