HepC in Pregnancy: Strategies to Improve Linkage to Care and Treatment PART TWO of A TiP-HepC Community of Practice Webinar Series
Although routine antenatal testing for hepatitis C is increasing, there is limited guidance when it comes to best practices regarding hepatitis C treatment for individuals diagnosed during pregnancy. As a result, very few individuals diagnosed with hepatitis C in pregnancy are successfully treated, and they remain exposed to the ongoing risks associated with chronic hepatitis C infection.
This TiP-HepC ("Treatment in Pregnancy for Hepatitis C") Community of Practice is a three-part webinar series that will focus on 1) the challenges of linkage and treatment for hepatitis C in pregnancy, 2) practical strategies and best practices to improve linkage to care and treatment, and 3) research needs to improve clinical practice and treatment coverage for pregnant persons. This webinar series will bring together clinicians, academics, researchers, advocates, professional societies, regulatory agencies and industry representatives to align on best practices to improve treatment for HCV in pregnancy. The TiP-HepC Community of Practice is intended for all stakeholders involved in the care of hepatitis C infection in pregnancy.
This webinar is the second of a three part series, and it will focus on: "Strategies to Improve Linkage to Care and Treatment"
(The first in the series was held November 16th, 2022: "Challenges to HCV Linkage and Treatment in Pregnancy.")
A third webinar to explore research needs will be held March 15th.
