Viral Hepatitis Prevention Coordinators, a Vital CDC Program Helping to Achieve the Goals of the Viral Hepatitis Action Plan

by Dr. John Ward - from AIDS.gov's blog.

Viral Hepatitis Prevention Coordinators (VHPCs) are vital to the implementation of the nation’s Action Plan for the Prevention, Care, & Treatment of Viral Hepatitis, and ultimately, achievement of 3 of the national goals of reducing viral hepatitis transmission and disease:
  • Increase the proportion of persons who are aware of their hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection,
  • Increase the proportion of persons who are aware of their hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection, and
  • Reduce the number of new cases of HCV infection.
