Hep Test Webinar Series
CGHE convenes the webinar series Hep Test to foster a community of practice of global, national and local stakeholders committed to the scale-up of HBV and HCV testing to reach goals for hepatitis elimination and addressing systematic barriers that limit access to HBV and HCV testing.
The objectives of the Hep Test webinar series are to:
1) Share challenges and lessons learned in scaling-up HBV and HCV testing;
2) Build support for testing programs;
3) Disseminate innovations in test technologies and strategies; and
4) Identify new research needs.
Launch of HCV Elimination Tool
On June 30th, in a Hep Test webinar, the Coalition launched the HCV Global Elimination Tool, a new web-based resource to support hepatitis programs in budget-based planning developed by Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School and the Coalition for Global Hepatitis Elimination. The tool allows users to set country-specific elimination goals, select screening strategies, and then compare the costs and impact of various scale-up strategies.
