The field of HCV has changed perhaps faster than any other field in medicine. The Guest Editors have strived to create an issue that is a state-of-the-art analysis of solutions to specific challenges faced in the United States and globally in implementing HCV elimination strategies. They believe that clinicians now have the tools and road maps needed to accomplish this goal. The clinical review articles in this issue accomplish that: Using Existing Health Care Infrastructure To Expand HCV Care; Creating A Reproducible Health Economic Model To Describe The Burden Of HCV And Cost Of Treatment In Any Country; The Best Uses Of Cost-Effectiveness Models In HCV; Increasing Access To HCV Care In Corrections; Cure As Prevention Strategies For HCV In People Who Inject Drugs; Australia Will Eliminate HCV - How It Works; New York Is The First State In The US To Develop An HCV Elimination Strategy; When HCV Diagnostics Are The Barrier To Care; Key Findings From The Checs HCV Cohort Study; Strategies To Reduce HCV Reinfection Rates In People Who Inject Drugs; Strategies To Reduce HCV Reinfection Rates In Men Who Have Sex With Other Men; The Value Of Curing HCV From A Payer's Perspective; How To Expand Care Capacity In HCV; Strategies To Eliminate HCV In The HIV Coinfected Population; and The US Veteran's Administration: Lessons Learned And Best Practices For HCV Elimination.
