Resources to Support Viral Hepatitis Community Action
HHS recognizes that there is deep commitment from a wide range of stakeholders to accelerate progress in addressing viral hepatitis in the United States and that many innovative efforts are taking place all across the country. These contributions to our national response are vital. Winning the fight against viral hepatitis will require the action of all parts of society—federal, state, Tribal, and local governments; nongovernmental organizations such as health care providers, health systems, payers, community-based organizations, and academic institutions; and individual advocates, patients, and their families.
The number and type of stakeholder engaged in viral hepatitis has expanded in recent years as awareness has grown and effective tools have become available. Non-federal and community stakeholders bring unique expertise and invaluable knowledge of their communities and constituents. These stakeholders can leverage community capital to help develop holistic responses to viral hepatitis that meet their specific needs. In order to achieve the goals of the National Viral Hepatitis Action Plan 2017 - 2020, we must not only encourage and foster such efforts, we must also work together to share expertise and effective strategies and tools across all sectors to support the expansion of partnerships and innovation.
