Improving Hepatitis B and C Care Cascades: Focus on Increased Testing and Diagnosis
This Supplement supports state and local health departments that are currently funded recipients of “Improving Hepatitis B and C Care Cascades; Focus on Increased Testing and Diagnosis (CDC-RFA-PS17-1702)” to collaborate with partner organizations that are within designated high burden areas to conduct hepatitis B and hepatitis C testing and linkage to care in high-impact settings. The Supplement goal is to increase testing, diagnosis, and linkage to care for HBV and HCV infections among Person Who Inject Drugs (PWIDs). Activities will be focused in designated high burden areas within the applicant’s jurisdiction. Services will be provided in high impact settings in order to find PWID at increased risk for HBV or HCV infection from non-sterile injection. Activities will be implemented through local partnerships of organizations serving PWID and providing testing and linkage to care services. This program addresses the “Healthy People 2020” focus area of immunization and infectious diseases and aligns with the HHS 2017-2020 Viral Hepatitis Action Plan.
