Project Inform the report “Scaling Up Risk-Based Hepatitis C Screening in the United States”, stemming from a think tank of the same name, held in Washington DC on September 17 and 18, 2013, where a group of 29 advocates, policy experts, clinicians and public health officials met to discuss the barriers to and enablers of HCV screening in people who at risk for the virus.

The report provides background information, a meeting summary and final recommendations. After a series of presentations, activities and small- and large-group discussions, participants developed a list of needs, actions and recommendations to address the HCV awareness and screening needs of people at risk for HCV. These recommendations were then organized around the goals set forth within the “Action Plan for the Prevention, Care and Treatment of Viral Hepatitis’ to show how they can help us move the agenda forward.
