Eliminating Hepatitis C Virus among People with HIV: Data to Care Approaches

Tuesday, September 26, 2023 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm EDT
SPNS HIV/HCV Data-to-Care Initiative

You can eliminate hepatitis C virus among your Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program population.

Join us September 26 at 2:00 ET to learn about data to care approaches for micro-elimination. 
This RWHAP Part F SPNS initiative aimed to link individuals co-infected with HIV and HCV to care by leveraging public health surveillance and clinical data systems. The Yale University School of Medicine served as a Technical Assistance Provider for participating jurisdictions: Arizona, Connecticut, Kentucky, Michigan, Puerto Rico, Orange County Florida, and the Southern Nevada Health District. 
The project involved two major components:

  • The creation of HCV clearance cascades: Clearance cascades helped jurisdictions identify gaps in HCV testing and treatment by tracking the movement of individuals with HCV from initial infection to cure (including potential reinfection).
  • Outreach and linkage: Related activities focused on creating partnerships between jurisdictions and RWHAP clinics to develop clinic-based case conferencing lists and connect individuals to HCV treatment. 

This webinar, presented by Yale and Mission Analytics Group, the project evaluator, will focus on jurisdiction and clinic approaches and lessons learned in implementation to help you get started on your own micro-elimination activities.
