The Fund for Public Health in New York City (FPHNYC) on behalf of the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) is seeking proposals from Clinical Sites interested in implementing a Check Hep C Patient Navigation Program. The Check Hep C Patient Navigation Program was developed by DOHMH in 2012 to improve HCV testing, linkage to care, and treatment rates in NYC.
