Details:
  • Description:
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) strives to prevent viral hepatitis infections and to eliminate disease and mortality caused by viral hepatitis. CDC prioritizes public health actions needed to achieve four strategic objectives:

    1. Ensure vulnerable populations are vaccinated against viral hepatitis;

    2. Ensure early detection and response to stop transmission of hepatitis B and hepatitis C;

    3. Ensure persons living with hepatitis B and hepatitis C are diagnosed, linked to recommended care, and treated; and

    4. Act globally to prevent, detect, and control viral hepatitis transmission, illness, and associated mortality in the United States.

    This inaugural report on viral hepatitis elimination in the United States provides information on progress in the implementation of recommended interventions and the impact these interventions are having on prevention of viral hepatitis transmission, disease, and associated mortality.
