The elimination barometer for hepatitis B and C among people who inject drugs is designed to support countries affiliated to the EMCDDA in monitoring their progress towards the Sustainable Development Goal 3.3 and the elimination of viral hepatitis as a major public health threat by 2030. Under five building blocks, it brings together 10 epidemiological indicators (2019 or latest) and corresponding 2020 targets related to people who inject drugs for the EU, Norway and Turkey, following the WHO monitoring frameworks (WHO, 2016b, 2017).

For each indicator, the EMCDDA elimination barometer provides:

  • Contextual information, references and definitions
  • An infographic showing national data
  • The related 2020 WHO target
  • An achievement status: how many countries have reached the target
  • The corresponding data tables
