Hepatitis C Virus is liver disease and is a leading cause of death and morbidity with around 71 million people affected worldwide. Widespread availability of highly effective direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) have dramatically changed the treatment landscape of HCV with a cure rate of over 95%. In May 2019, French Health Authorities expanded prescription abilities to all physicians treating adult treatment-naive patients with HCV without cirrhosis of the liver. This study will assess the treatment uptake and barriers to treatment by non-HCV specialist in France in community-based addiction centers. Beyond these evaluations, data on health resource utilization in addiction centers, level of knowledge of both patients and providers on HCV infection and treatment, care cascade, effectiveness and safety of Glecaprevir/Pibrentasvir among patients treated in addiction centers and evolution of addiction behavior after treatment are of specific interest.
