Core Tip Geographic integration of hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a newly described epidemiological pheno-menon that is illustrated for the first time in this review article. The global burden of HCV infection has sur-passed expectations and HCV genotypes are no longer restricted to certain countries or regions. All countries and their citizens are at a higher risk of HCV infection. HCV integration can be either intra-continental or trans-continental. Globalization, immigration and drug trafficking, in addition to the traditional HCV transmission factors, have acted as vectors for the geographical integration of HCV. International efforts and new strate-gies that go beyond borders should be combined to tackle this global threat.
