Community-based Programs to Test and Cure Hepatitis C (CDC-RFA-PS14-1413)

This program is intended to strengthen health-care capacity to diagnose and cure hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection through implementation of a package of services in a target population with HCV-related health disparities. A coalition of key stakeholders (i.e., health departments, specialists in HCV care, and primary-care providers) was funded to develop and implement these services. Expected outcomes include increased primary-care provider capacity to diagnose and cure HCV infection (including increased use of electronic medical records); increased availability of population-level data (for assessment of community impact); and meeting or exceeding targets for testing (i.e., at least 10,000 persons), diagnosis, and cure. 

CDC has awarded a total of $4,300,000 to the following organizations:

  1. University of Chicago (Project title: Hepatitis C Community Alliance to Test and Treat in Chicago)
  2. Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (Project title: Maryland proposal to build capacity of providers to test for hepatitis C, link infected patients to care, and ensure receipt of treatment leading to sustained viral suppression)
  3. Public Health - Seattle & King County (Project title: Public Health - Seattle & King County HCV Test and Cure Project)
