This report provides a brief overview of a study conducted by a research team
affiliated with the University of British Columbia and the British Columbia Centre
for Disease Control and funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada. The aim
of the study was to explore why some people living with hepatitis C attend, delay,
defer or do not seek hepatitis C care. This research was conducted as the first
stage of a two-year project which aims to develop and disseminate resources that
will foster or support increased attendance for hepatitis C care.
