NYC Hep C Peer Navigation Program

The goal of the NYC Hep C Peer Navigation Program is to prevent new Hep C infections and navigate NYC residents at risk for Hep C through testing and medical care. Peer navigators support patients to complete Hep C testing, link to medical care, and prevent infection or re-infection. This program is funded by New York City Council and administered by the NYC Health Department.
