Eliminating Viral Hepatitis in Pennsylvania: Mobilizing Partners and Addressing Syndemics through Micro-Elimination
We have the tools to eliminate viral hepatis in the United States, including highly effectively vaccines against hepatitis A and B, harm reduction strategies that can prevent half of hepatitis C cases, and curative treatments for hepatitis C that can prevent deaths and further transmission. However, cases of hepatitis A and C continue to rise and progress against hepatitis B has stalled, due to social and structural barriers that limit access to hepatitis services and insufficient funding for health department hepatitis programs.

This Hepatitis Awareness Month, join NACCHO for a webinar highlighting how state and local health departments in Pennsylvania are mobilizing partners to eliminate viral hepatitis and tackle the syndemic of viral hepatitis, HIV and other STIs, and substance use. The webinar will include an overview of hepatitis elimination across the US, including the critical role played by local health departments, followed by a deeper dive into hepatitis elimination in Pennsylvania. Speakers from the Pennsylvania Department of Health, Allegheny County Health Department (Pittsburgh), and Philadelphia Department of Public Health will share how they collaborate across jurisdictions and highlight strategies for the micro-elimination of viral hepatitis among pregnant people, people who use drugs, and people living with HIV. The webinar will also include Q&A with the speakers and the opportunity to discuss how local health departments can advance hepatitis elimination across the country.
