From the AETC NCRC: Send Your Resources by (March 1) for Hep C Call to Action, May 2018

Dear AETC Program Colleagues: To address the rising rates of HCV infection across the U.S. and its territories, HRSA is organizing a “Hep C Call to Action” throughout May - National Hepatitis Awareness month.  Additionally, the AETC NCRC has been working with regional AETCs and SPNS demonstration project sites to provide resources and education to providers to increase the detection, treatment, and cure of HCV infection in people of color living with HIV. This year, the AETC HIV/HCV Community of Practice will be establishing May 17th as National HIV/HCV Co-infection Awareness Day (to precede HIV Vaccine Awareness Day on 5/18, and National Hepatitis Testing Day and National Asian and Pacific Islander HIV/AIDS Awareness Day on 5/19).

However, at this point, we are asking you for 3 things: resources, planned activities, and stories regarding HIV/HCV co-infection information that you have available to share. Please send any other AETC Program HCV-related educational materials you have that are NOT listed above! The AETC NCRC will create a new page on our website with all the resources listed for “one-stop” shopping and HRSA will promote this resource page.  We need to know what other resources are available by no later than March 1st. Thanks, and do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions. AETC NCRC Staff

Below are the resources we are currently aware of and have available on the AETC NCRC website:
