The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine  released Eliminating the Public Health Problem of Hepatitis B and C in the United States.
The report was commissioned by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division of Viral Hepatitis (DVH) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Minority Health (OMH) to determine the feasibility of national elimination of hepatitis B and, and to describe barriers to meeting this goal.

The Consensus Committee determined that “hepatitis B and C could both be eliminated as public health problems in the United States, but that this would take considerable will and resources: disease control might be more manageable in the short-term.”

The second phase of the project (to be published in 2017) will set a strategy and recommend action to eliminate the public health problem of hepatitis B and C.
