As we enter 2015, nonprofit organizations that specialize in health
advocacy start to compile lists of ambitious resolutions for the New
Year. They pledge to spread the word more widely than ever about a
particular cause, to exert influence over lawmakers, and to enlist more
scientists, advocates and donors in the latest public health crusade.
I, as executive director of just such a nonprofit, could do the same. I
could give you a rundown on our own resolutions to end the infectious
disease known as hepatitis C.
Instead, I'm going to be really presumptuous. I'm going to take the
liberty of making resolutions on behalf of others. I'll spell out the
vows that I believe all the key stakeholders in the fight against
hepatitis C should follow in the year ahead.
