CHLPI Faculty Director Quoted in Editorial Written by the Boston Globe Editorial Board

An editorial released by the Boston’s Globe’s editorial board on Thursday, April 14th, 2016, calls for insurance providers to allow unfettered access to the Hepatitis C cure for all living with the disease.

“Don’t deny hepatitis C patients a cure” follows an article published in the previous Sunday’s Boston Globe, “Hepatitis C drug costs leave many without care,” which also includes quotes from CHLPI’s Robert Greenwald.

Excerpt from article:

“’If there was a cure for Alzheimer’s or multiple sclerosis and we restricted treatment, there would be a huge outcry,’ says Robert Greenwald, director of the Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation at Harvard Law School.

Preventing the ravages of hepatitis C also could stem a disturbing trend reported last month by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — a nationwide rise in the number of liver cancer cases, about half of which are caused by hepatitis C.”
