In parallel to support around Hep C CHAI has also supported the Government of Indonesia in their decision to roll out a universal birth dose vaccination for Hep B.

 

With CHAI's support Indonesia aims to get all patients infected with Hep C on treatment by getting affordable medications which can be included in the Indonesian Community Based Health Insurance Scheme (locally known as the Mutuelle), and eradicating transmission of mother to child Hep B with the implementation of the universal vaccine.
