NASTAD has created a sign-on letter for Congressional leaders and appropriators asking that they allocate at least $100 million to CDC’s viral hepatitis program in FY2018. Congress included $6 billion over two years included in the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 to fight the nation’s opioid epidemic and this letter urges a portion of that funding goes to communities to deal with increasing hepatitis C, hepatitis B and HIV infections. For more information about the ask please see the letter. If your organization would like to be included please fill out this google form by next Wednesday, February 21st.
