A growing number of hepatitis elimination projects are being established across the United States. Responding to the National Viral Hepatitis Action Plan call for more coordinated and collaborative efforts aimed at elimination, a wide range of stakeholders are leading and engaged in these efforts across a variety of settings including states, local jurisdictions, health systems, and non-governmental organizations. This webinar is hosted by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Minority Health and the Office of HIV/AIDS and Infectious Disease Policy. Participants will learn about several elimination project examples, practical steps and key messages to inform individuals and organizations in responding to the public health threat of viral hepatitis.
- Learn about the current state/community level approaches and interventions to eliminate viral hepatitis.
- Be able to describe planning tools for culturally competent programs/campaigns for viral hepatitis prevention and elimination.
- Identify potential stakeholder types and strategies for new states, local jurisdictions, health systems, and non-governmental organizations to join and help put the United States on the path toward viral hepatitis elimination.
