CAIRO: The annual rate of those suffering from Hepatitis C will be reduced from 100,000 to 14,000 by 2025, according to a Health Ministry plan.

The ministry is prepared to provide the needed medications to accomplish the plan Qadry Saeed, Executive Manager of the National Committee for Control of Viral Hepatitis (NCCVH,) told Youm7 Tuesday.

Having one of the highest infection rates of hepatitis C in the world, Egypt began a wide-scale campaign to treat patients with imported medications that have proved a breakthrough in treating the virus.

The government also began to produce Hepatitis C drugs in Egypt in hopes to cure some 500,000 patients during 2016 using domestically manufactured medications.
