Webinar | Hepatitis Virtual Collaborative @NASTAD
October 22 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
Oct 22, 2020, 11:00 AM in Eastern Time (the US and Canada)
NASTAD and The AIDS Institute are excited to host the first-ever Hepatitis Virtual Collaborative! It is a partial-day opportunity for hepatitis and infectious disease advocates and patients from across the country to come together virtually to connect with each other and learn about what jurisdictions are doing to combat viral hepatitis in their communities through presentations and conversations. Best of all, it’s FREE!
Presentations will include hepatitis elimination strategies and how a syndemic approach must be taken that incorporate responses to the viral hepatitis epidemics, overdose prevention, and other public health efforts. Additional barriers to advancing hepatitis elimination will also be examined, including criminalization of hepatitis and drug use, discrimination and stigma concerns, treatment access issues in correctional settings, vaccination barriers, and health inequities.
