What is US-HAMP?
o A multi-state collaborative learning network with collective impact to empower key state leaders to train primary care providers in their state to screen, diagnose, evaluate, treat, cure and follow patients with chronic hepatitis C and report treatment outcomes across America. Per CDC, more persons die from Hepatitis C than all other 60 reported infectious diseases combined, causing at least 20,000 deaths each year.
Educate key state leaders about the elements of a successful state-based HAMP model
Empower state leaders to develop a team-based program that will improve both individual and public health and provide momentum for eliminating hepatitis C in the US according to the Viral Hepatitis Strategic Plan 2025.
Advocate for expanded access to curative hepatitis C treatment through education of a broad range of care providers, development of strong linkages to care, best practices, health equity, policy changes and insurance reform.
Collaborate to provide resources and networking opportunities to multiple stakeholders within their state. Collaborate with other state programs to strengthen state-based HAMP.
