From Sunday Morning, 7:45 am on 29 July 2018

There's been some good news for the around 50,000 New Zealanders who have Hepatitis C. A drug capable of curing the disease, Maviret, will be fully funded by Pharmac and be available from October. Otago Professor Ed Gane helped to develop the drug. He joins Hepatitis C patient Wendy Overy to talk about the new medicine and the difference it will make to sufferers' lives.
