Event Date: 
5 December 2019, 12:00 EST

The integration of hepatitis C care within broader harm reduction or related HIV service models could remove some of the barriers to access and engagement. This webinar will discuss potential strategies to overcome these barriers by focusing on promising models of frontline programs for people who use drugs or who are marginalized from mainstream healthcare, such as co-location and integration of services.

Moderator: Amanda Giacomazzo, CATIE

Speakers:

  • Dr. Shruti Mehta, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health
  • Matthew Bonn, Harm Reduction Outreach Worker/HANDUP Member
  • Rachael Edwards, Harm Reduction Nurse Consultant/Hepatitis C Nurse

This webinar is part of a series on international approaches to hepatitis C programs, co-presented by CATIE and the International Network on Hepatitis in Substance Users (INHSU).
