The Hepatitis Policy Project works at the intersection of law and policy to eliminate viral hepatitis in the United States. Focusing on hepatitis C (HCV) law and policy in the United States, its analysis concentrates on removing barriers to access to effective treatments for HCV.
About 2.4 million people live with chronic hepatitis C in the United States.
51% of people with hepatitis C don’t know that they have it.
Cases of acute hepatitis C infections reported to the CDC increased by 426 percent from 2010 to 2018.
The Hepatitis Policy Project provides expert research and analysis on hepatitis C legal and policy issues that affect access to screening and treatment. We develop tools that facilitate the practical design and implementation of viral hepatitis elimination initiatives in the United States, with a focus on elevating policies that support hepatitis C elimination.
