The National Hepatitis Corrections Network (NHCN) is a network of people with an interest in hepatitis C in corrections. We support a public health approach to hepatitis education, prevention, testing, and treatment in prisons and jails. Network partners include correctional administrators and healthcare providers, researchers, legal and policy stakeholders, community-based organizations, and educators. The National Hepatitis Corrections Network is managed by The Hepatitis Education Project (HEP). HEP is a non-profit organization that provides direct services and raises awareness about hepatitis.
