In short:

--- Quote ---Only 11 countries are on track to eliminate hepatitis C by 2030, and no country is are expected to eliminate hepatitis B in that time frame, according to study findings presented at the AASLD Liver Meeting.

According to the hepatitis C models, only 11 countries are on track to meet all HCV elimination targets by 2030: Australia, Canada, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, France, the country of Georgia, Japan, Norway, Spain and the United Kingdom. Another two dozen are expected to meet these targets between 2031 and 2050.

The hepatitis B models showed that no country is on track to achieve all HBV targets by 2030 or by 2050. But more than 80 countries will reduce the prevalence of hepatitis B in children ages 5 and underóthe age group covered by universal HBV vaccination programsóby 2030.
