Join OMH and OHAIDP for the May 22, 2019 Webinar: Mapping Hepatitis Elimination

Summary: 
During Hepatitis Awareness Month, the Office of Minority Health and OHAIDP collaborate with stakeholders to launch the first Map of Hepatitis Elimination projects in the United States.

This Hepatitis Awareness Month, the Office of HIV/AIDS and Infectious Disease Policy (OHAIDP) is highlighting the growing number of hepatitis elimination projects that are being established across the United States. A wide range of stakeholders are leading and engaged in these efforts across a variety of settings including states, local jurisdictions, health systems, and non-governmental organizations in response to the National Viral Hepatitis Action Plan’s call for more coordinated and collaborative efforts aimed at elimination.

This webinar, hosted by the Office of Minority Health (OMH) and OHAIDP at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, will feature elimination project examples, practical steps, and key messages to inform individuals and organizations in responding to the public health threat of viral hepatitis.
