Following the White House’s recent proposal for a National Hepatitis C Elimination Plan as part of its Fiscal Year 2024 budget request to Congress, and the fact that key populations for HIV are also at high risk of HCV, Treatment Action Group is organizing a webinar that will highlight best practices and challenges for HCV elimination with a specific focus on high-burden populations. The webinar will equip policymakers, clinicians, health advocates, civil society and other stakeholders with tools to better address barriers to eliminating HCV among key populations and encourage participants to apply new insights into HCV/HIV comorbidity to their work. You can register for the webinar here.
