Sampling patient cohorts and learning about the behaviour of people diagnosed with hepatitis
Work package 1 takes place at CILM, Laos, and INEN, Peru, with secondments of researchers from IRD to the two sites. After completing ethics and sampling processes, the cohort of patients who have already been diagnosed with hepatitis and/or HCC will be surveyed and examined. This will help the team to learn more about their clinical status, socio-economic profile, therapeutic itineraries, and behaviours associated with the development of disease and delays in diagnosis.
