New Resources for Providers to Address HIV/HCV Coinfection

Providers are key partners in national efforts to reduce and, ultimately, eliminate hepatitis C virus (HCV) coinfection among people living with HIV. As such, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and federal partners released several new HIV-HCV coinfection resources for healthcare providers and others working with people living with HIV and HCV. These resources are designed to support providers in diverse settings effectively engage and remain up to date on how to make the best use of the range of tools now available to help us achieve this goal. The resources include:

  • Myths About Treating Substance Users with Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) Infographic
  • Updated: Passport to Cure Brochure
  • HIV-HCV Coinfection Session from the 2018 National Ryan White Clinical Conference
  • Updated HHS Recommendations for the Use of Antiretroviral Drugs in Pregnant Women with HIV Infection and Interventions to Reduce Perinatal HIV Transmission in the United States
  • Viral Hepatitis Educational opportunities from CDC

Access all the resources.
