Our Issue

Despite the availability of effective, all-oral treatments to cure hepatitis C (HCV), and despite the public health and harm reduction tools available to prevent new infections, HCV now kills more people in this country than any other infectious disease; this includes the combined deaths of  HIV, pneumococcal disease, tuberculosis, and 57 other infectious diseases. 

 

Our Call To Action

New York State (NYS) faces a growing hepatitis C epidemic with a rising death toll. Given the availability of new highly effective, well-tolerated curative treatments, we can no longer settle for a low cure rate that perpetuates the high fiscal and human costs of inaction. The committee that organized the NYS Hepatitis C Elimination Summit, along with the other providers, community based organizations and individuals living with and affected by hepatitis C that sign the consensus statement, call on Governor Andrew Cuomo, the NYS Legislature, and industry partners to make a joint commitment to hepatitis C elimination, and for appointment of a formal NYS Hepatitis C Elimination Task Force.
