    The Punjab government has launched a special fund “Mukh Mantri Punjab Hepatitis C Relief Fund” to provide free treatment for patients affected by Hepatitis C. With this initiative, Punjab became the first Indian state to provide free treatment to confirmed cases of Hepatitis C.   The fund will have initial corpus of 20 crore rupees. This fund will provide all the residents of Punjab affected by Hepatitis C free treatment. The scheme is considered important in the public health measures of the state as the prevalence rate of patients affected by Hepatitis could be as high as 3%.   There might be even up to 10 lakh cases of suspected Hepatitis C in the state of which up to 6 lakh would require treatment. It will also help patients to get free treatment as injectable peg-interferon for the disease is very expensive and unaffordable.
