Hepatitis C Prevention
The Hepatitis C (HCV) Prevention Program is an extension of the HIV Prevention Program under the Infectious Disease umbrella at the Arkansas Department of Health. The program is federally funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and is required to fulfil specific goals and objectives as it relates to HCV prevention. CDC requires the program to:
- Facilitate state and large city viral hepatitis elimination planning
- Increase access to hepatitis C testing and prevention
- Increase access to hepatitis C medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and treatment services
The program collaborates with the HCV Surveillance Program to meet these objectives, as well as collaborate with its various community partners and subgrantees. HCV subgrantees are an extension of the program and offer HCV testing and prevention services too.
Furthermore, in addition to HCV testing and collaboration, the program offers HCV education and training opportunities. Community members and organizations may attend the HCV training course and become a certified HCV counselor and tester.
Hepatitis C Prevention Community Partners include:
Engaging Arkansas (EAC)
Future Builders (FB)
Dr. Ebony Conley
Arkansas Human Development Corporation (AHDC)
