Background: Treatment for infection with hepatitis C virus (HCV) during pregnancy has not yet been approved; however, interventions specifically targeting women, especially those of childbearing age (15–49 years), could prevent vertical transmission and community spread.

We aimed to estimate the global prevalence of viraemic HCV in 2019 among women of childbearing age.
