The Viral Hepatitis Federal Implementation Plan* (Federal Implementation Plan) outlines federal partners’ commitments to eliminating the public health threat of viral hepatitis in the United States by 2030.
The Federal Implementation Plan summarizes the policies, research, and activities that federal partners intend to put into practice through 2025 to meet the goals of the Viral Hepatitis National Strategic Plan for the United States: A Roadmap to Elimination 2021-2025 (ViralHepatitis Plan), which was released in January 2021 and provides a framework to eliminate viral hepatitis by 2030.
Coordinated by the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health (OASH) through the Office of Infectious Disease and HIV/AIDS Policy (OIDP) the Federal Implementation Plan was developed by a Viral Hepatitis Implementation Working Group (VHIWG) consisting of leadership from seventeen HHS agencies/offices and four additional federal departments.
Carrying out the Viral Hepatitis Plan goes beyond what the federal government can do. Its success depends on active participation by national, state, local, and tribal health departments and organizations, health plans and health care providers, community- and faith-based organizations, scientists, researchers, and the public working together with the federal government to achieve our collective goal to eliminate viral hepatitis in the United States.
