Project Period Length: 5 Years
This cooperative agreement will support projects to increase in the identification of people with chronic hepatitis B and hepatitis C infection by (1) leading and growing a national coalition to address the public health challenge of chronic viral hepatitis through training and technical assistance to conduct culturally competent outreach, extending the reach of CDC’s national campaigns, and enhancing testing and linkage to care in high risk communities, and (2) developing up-to-date, comprehensive web-based, hepatitis materials, resources, and trainings for health professionals
CDC has awarded funding for three projects in:
- Philadelphia, PA – Hep B United
- Washington, DC – National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors (NASTAD)
- Seattle, WA – University of Washington
Funding for the five-year project period is expected to be approximately $648,000 each year.
