HHS Hepatitis Action Plan Rollout Event 5/12 1 PM est NEW WEBCAST INFO for our colleagues across the US

It is our pleasure to invite you to join HHS Assistant Secretary for Health Dr. Howard Koh and other HHS officials

on

Thursday, May 12, 2011
as they announce the new
Action Plan to Prevent, Care and Treat Viral Hepatitis.

 

Though hepatitis is a leading cause of death in the U.S., many people who have it don’t know they are infected, so they are at greater risk for severe – or even fatal – complications of the disease, and at greater risk of unwittingly spreading the virus to others.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is committed to ensuring that new cases of viral hepatitis are prevented and that persons who are already infected are tested, informed about their infection, and provided with counseling, care, and treatment. Comprehensive and sustained efforts are necessary to effectively eliminate this epidemic.  Please join HHS officials and community representatives as they discuss the actions necessary to achieve this goal.
