The Hepatitis C, prisons and treatment opportunities (HePATO) study is run by the National Drug Research Institute at Curtin University. This research project aims to investigate the structural and cultural barriers which limit access to treatment and care of hepatitis C in the offender population. Research will be gathered using survey data and qualitative interviews with prisoners and prison health staff. The project will also estimate the public health benefits of a full uptake of treatment.
