Core Tip Hepatitis C virus (HCV) in Pakistan is highly endemic, with around 6.8% of general population infected with this virus. Approximately 6% of the population of Pakistan is actively infected with HCV. However, only very few relevant reports are available and more studies are needed. Research articles reviewed suggest a link between underdevelopment and HCV prevalence, as well as the predominant involvement of unsafe medical procedures in the spread of the virus in Pakistan. Although genotype 3a is most prevalent HCV subtype in Pakistan, recent years have witnessed an increase in the incidence of genotype 2a in Sindh and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provinces.
