  • Conduct situational analyses to describe
    • jurisdiction-wide disease burden, epidemiologic trends, and laws/policies impacting testing, care, and treatment of HBV and HCV infection prevalence
    • settings where HBV and HCV testing should be conducted;
  • Work with settings in highest burden areas to implement intervention(s) to
    • increase HBV and HCV testing and detection
    • develop strategies to educate providers in partner settings, and c) monitor/evaluate interventions and their outcomes
    • educate the public, partners and stakeholders on state-mandated HBV and HCV reporting and public/private insurance reimbursement for recommended testing and treatment
  • Work with state agencies to improve testing and treatment in all settings where HBV and HCV testing should be done and integrate HBV and HCV testing in CDC supported HD programs
  • Monitor/evaluate policy impacts
