250 people already treated for Hepatitis C

 Iceland's new campaign to eradicate Hepatitis C and offer free treatment has resulted in 360 people having been treated already.

Over 800 people are thought to be infected with Hepatitis C in Iceland and health authorities have managed to contact almost 500 of them to offer free treatment. 

The decision to launch this campaign was made in late 2014 using new revolutionary treatment in tablet form with only minor  side effects for patients. 

The campaign is organised by the National University Hospital and the Vogur addiction treatment centre.
