  Action on Hepatitis C (AHC) was formed in July 1999 out of deep professional and service user concern at the failure of government to adequately address the problem of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection and its consequences throughout UK, particularly in England and Wales. For six years prior to its formation, and despite a major epidemic, professionals from many different backgrounds had failed to facilitate progress on this issue.

  Action on Hepatitis C is an independent body with no financial backing. Members have given up their free time to help address this problem in an attempt to obtain government action. A membership list is appended.
