Join Us! Hep Elimination Planning

IMG_0236.JPG

On World Hepatitis Day, July 28 2019, we partnered with the Hawaii Department of Health and the Hawaii Health and Harm Reduction Center to host the inaugural meeting to develop Hawaii's Hepatitis Elimination Plan. (Read our current plan.) It was attended by 45 stakeholders including patients, consumers, medical and social service providers, policymakers, and many more! We were also honored to have the support of Lieutenant Governor Josh Green, who proclaimed Hepatitis Elimination an important priority for Hawaii. See the KITV news spot about the event here.

 As we continue in our year-long planning process, we would love your insights and feedback. To join, sign and send this commitment form to hepfreehawaii@gmail.com.

We look forward to eliminating hepatitis and addressing related harms for our communities in Hawaii.  Mahalo for being on this journey with us!
