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.
NYC Hep C Peer Navigators provide the following services at no cost to the patient: Hep C health coaching, Hep C prevention services, referrals to supportive services, navigation through complete Hep C testing, and linkage to and retention in Hep C care.
To be eligible patients must reside in NYC and be at risk of getting Hep C, or have a positive hepatitis C antibody or RNA test result.
