Hepatitis C Virus – Epidemiology – Mature Markets Data

DRG Epidemiology's coverage of hepatitis C comprises epidemiological estimates of key patient populations across 45 countries worldwide. We report both the incidence and prevalence of hepatitis C for each country, as well as annualized case counts projected to the national population.

DRG Epidemiology's hepatitis C forecast will answer the following questions:

  • Of all people with hepatitis C, how many in each country across the world have been formally diagnosed?
  • Of all people diagnosed with hepatitis C, how many in each country across the world are drug-treated?
  • How will demographic trends, such as population aging and improving life expectancy, affect the epidemiology of hepatitis C over the forecast period?

All forecast data are available on the DRG Insights Platform in tabular format, with options to download to MS Excel. All populations are accompanied by a comprehensive description of the methods and data sources used, with hyperlinks to external sources. A summary evidence table generated as part of our systematic review of the epidemiological literature is also provided for full transparency into research and methods. In addition, we provide a graphical depiction of the patient flow between or within different disease states for the countries considered in this report. These patient flow diagrams are provided at the regional level, but may be requested for any specific country or forecast year.

DRG Epidemiology provides at least ten years of forecast data for the following hepatitis C patient populations:

  • Total Prevalent Cases by Viremic Status
  • Diagnosed Prevalent Cases Drug Treatment subpopulation(s)
  • Hepatitis C Total Incident Cases Total Prevalent Cases Diagnosis subpopulation(s)
  • Hepatitis C Total Prevalent Cases

Note: coverage may vary by country and region.
