Webinar: HCV Linkage and Navigation to Cure
Join NASTAD’s Hepatitis Testing Partnership on March 27 from 1:00-2:30 PM ET for a webinar on HCV Linkage and Navigation to Cure.
Historically, hepatitis programs have focused on testing and passive referrals because of the limited treatment options before direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) and funding limitations that continue to plague hepatitis programs. With the availability of a cure, more programs are developing to support hepatitis C virus (HCV) linkage to care, navigation, care coordination, and case management to help move people across the HCV continuum. Scaling up these programs will be critical to increasing the number of people who can access a cure and ultimately work towards hepatitis elimination.
This webinar will highlight models for linkage to care, patient navigation, care coordination, and case management for HCV including health department funded, health department staffed, and CBO run as well as discuss successful strategies for linking and navigating people to cure.
