The MO HEPC, Show Me the Cure plan is here! We are excited to share the first Missouri Hepatitis C Elimination Plan. We hope that you will take the opportunity to read through it. If you have any questions or feedback please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
About the plan:
The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Service, Viral Hepatitis Prevention Program (VHPP) receives a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to provide education and awareness for viral hepatitis. As part of this grant a hepatitis elimination plan is required. The plan is expected to be complete in May 2022.
Increase access to hepatitis C prevention, testing, and treatment for all Missouri citizens.
Create a plan to eliminate hepatitis C in Missouri by ensuring universal testing, improving health care outcomes for people living with hepatitis C, and preventing new infections.
