reinfections are simply an indicator that we are treating the right population. People who become reinfected are not only at risk of HCV infection but likely HCV transmission as well and so treatment among this population is crucial in order to reduce the incidence of new HCV cases. It is important reinfection cases are seen in this framework and patients are given access to timely retreatment without any stigma or discrimination.
