HepVu: Mapping the Hepatitis Epidemic in the U.S.

Today, the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University, in partnership with Gilead Sciences, Inc., launched HepVu.org, an interactive online resource that offers a first-of-its-kind picture of the hepatitis C virus (HCV) epidemic across the country. HepVu, which is a Powered By AIDSVu project, presents the first standardized U.S. state-level estimates of Hepatitis C prevalence, generated by Emory University’s Coalition for Applied Modeling for Prevention (CAMP) through a project supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. HepVu strives to provide public health professionals, policymakers, and affected communities with a valuable resource to support viral hepatitis education, advocacy, and program planning.

For more information, view the HepVu online tool, register for this webinar for an overview the tool, and check out this research paper outlining the CAMP project’s full findings.
