New Website: Hepatitis Policy Project

The Hepatitis Policy Project invites you to visit their new policy-focused website on hepatitis C. While there is already an abundance of general information available on the etiology, symptoms and transmission of HCV, this site is intended to provide the latest policy actions and most timely and relevant information related to the HCV crisis.

Content consists of links to relevant articles, study findings, features from thought leaders in the viral hepatitis space, and summaries of current policy issues written by the Policy Project team. The goal for the site is to fill a niche that is different than that of the CDC and other sites whose primary purpose is to provide information for the general public.

A highlight of the site is the Featured Expert Column that provides timely insights from leaders in viral hepatitis policy and advocacy. The inaugural expert column was authored by Dr. Rich Wolitski, Director, and Corinna Dan, Viral Hepatitis Policy Advisor, of the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Service’s Office of HIV/AIDS and Infectious Disease Policy.
