Abstract

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is an important viral infection that can result in chronic hepatitis and hepatoma. The surveillance of disease is an important tool for early detection and prompt management of infection. Here, the authors perform a cost effectiveness analysis of anti-HCV serological test versus HCV RNA test for epidemiological surveillance. Based on our setting, a tropical country in Indochina, the test is more cost effective.
