The purpose of this FOA is to support implementation of a viral hepatitis testing initiative to increase early identification of persons with hepatitis B and hepatitis C (or both), with a focus on medically underserved populations and populations that are disproportionately affected by these infections. In accordance with the HHS Viral Hepatitis Action Plan (available at http://www.hhs.gov/ash/initiatives/hepatitis), this FOA focuses on CDC’s commitment to ensure that new cases of viral hepatitis are prevented and that persons who are already infected are tested, informed of their infection, provided with counseling, and linked to care, treatment, and prevention services. This program also addresses the Healthy People 2020 focus area(s) of Immunization and Infectious Diseases (available at http://www.healthypeople.gov/).
