Connecting with hepatitis C care during COVID-19
Community hepatitis C programs have been dramatically affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, with health inequities exacerbated and barriers to care increased, particularly for marginalized populations.
Launched in 2019, the Connecting with Care films profile innovative models of hepatitis C care for people who use drugs in Toronto, Montreal and Ahtahkakoop First Nation. In preparation for World Hepatitis Day this July, we will reconnect with service providers from these programs to learn how they have adapted and responded to COVID-19.
Filmmaker Conor Ashleigh will host the discussion, in which we will hear how the pandemic has changed their practices and what insights they have for other service providers providing hepatitis C care.
This webinar and the Connecting with Care films are a partnership between the International Network on Health and Hepatitis in Substance Users (INHSU), the Canadian Network on Hepatitis C (CanHepC) and CATIE.
