These guidelines aim to provide evidence-based recommendations on the care and treatment of persons diagnosed with chronic HCV infection. They update the care and treatment section of the WHO Guidelines for the screening, care and treatment of persons with hepatitis C infection issued in April 2016. The 2017 Guidelines on hepatitis B and C testing update the screening section.

These guidelines are intended for government officials to use as the basis for developing national hepatitis policies, plans and treatment guidelines. These include country programme managers and health-care providers responsible for planning and implementing hepatitis care and treatment programmes, particularly in low- and middle-income countries.
