These resources synthesize findings from the federally funded Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) Hepatitis C Treatment Expansion Initiative, which focused on HCV treatment among coinfected patients. SPNS grantees implemented HCV treatment into their HIV primary care settings and those lessons learned are captured here. The target audience includes health care provider sites and community partners with an interest in treating HCV among their HIV-positive coinfected patients.
The Hepatitis Treatment Expansion Initiative (San Francisco) case study highlights an evidence-informed innovative model of care.
While antiretroviral therapy has significantly improved health outcomes and longevity among people with HIV (PWH), hepatitis C (HCV) has emerged as a major contributing factor of morbidity and mortality among individuals who are coinfected.
The Pocket Guide: Addressing the Care Continuum: Addressing HIV/HCV Coinfection highlights the project.
