View HHS Release of the Viral Hepatitis Action Plan

Combating the Silent Epidemic of Viral Hepatitis: Action Plan for the Prevention, Care & Treatment of Viral HepatitisIn a blog post on May 12, we reported on the HHS’s release of the Action Plan for the Prevention, Care & Treatment of Viral Hepatitis (Action Plan) (PDF 672KB) at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.  If you missed the event, we encourage you to watch a live webcast Exit Disclaimer of the release of the Action Plan.

Signaling the commitment of HHS to combating and treating viral hepatitis, the Action Plan will help HHS improve its current efforts to prevent new cases of viral hepatitis and related disease by 1) identifying steps that can be taken to reach specific goals; 2) leveraging opportunities to improve coordination of viral hepatitis activities across HHS operating divisions; 3) setting priorities for HHS to develop public-health and primary-care infrastructure needed for viral hepatitis prevention and care at the federal, state, and local levels; and 4) providing a framework for HHS to engage other governmental agencies and nongovernmental organizations in viral hepatitis prevention and care.
