Abstract

This report presents findings related to the hepatitis B and C continuum of care, policy on testing and treatment, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on hepatitis services in the EU/EEA from the second data collection conducted in 2021. Data on these topics were collected directly from National Focal Points (NFPs) in 26 of the 30 countries in the EU/EEA. Data on the continuum of care were requested for 2020 or the most recent year with data; data on policy and the impact of COVID-19 reflect NFPs’ views in 2021, during the period of data collection (July–September 2021). The monitoring questionnaire aimed to capture data that would inform progress towards the 2020 WHO European Region Action Plan service targets for the elimination of viral hepatitis. Policy and COVID-19 impact data are presented to provide information on the context and healthcare system environment in which hepatitis services were delivered.
