Viral hepatitis poses a serious threat to the health of millions of Americans from all walks of life. The release of the first Action Plan for the Prevention, Care and treatment of Viral Hepatitis in 2011 marked the beginning of a coordinated national response to viral hepatitis in the United States. Federal and nonfederal stakeholder efforts have evolved and advanced in response to the growing threat of viral hepatitis to the health of Americans. Hepatitis B does not affect all Americans equally. Despite progress, viral hepatitis continues to be a serious threat to the health of Americans. Support will be provided to develop up to seven collaborative partnerships between CBOs serving communities at risk, such as health departments, perinatal hepatitis B programs, Community Health Centers that have capacity to scale-up testing and care services and ultimately reach the National Hepatitis B elimination goals. The Hepatitis B Demonstration Program aligns with HHS Strategic Goal 2: Protect the Health of Americans Where They Live, Learn, Work, and Play.
