WVHAMP is designed to build a mentorship platform that is accessible to primary care providers caring for
high-risk individuals throughout West Virginia so that individuals with chronic hepatitis C can be cared for and cured in their own community. The program is sponsored by the West Virginia Rural Health Association.
At the end of the 12-month training cycle, participating providers can hope to:
- Establish a primary care workforce trained by hepatitis C experts to screen, diagnose, treat, and follow up with the goal of curing persons with chronic hepatitis C infection throughout West Virginia, including high-risk, rural, and low-resource settings.
- Remove barriers to care for individuals diagnosed with hepatitis C.
- Increase the number of West Virginians living with hepatitis C who are successfully linked to care and cured.
for the first training session on March 5, 2020 at Quality Hotel and Conference Center in Bluefield, WV. Contact WVRHA Executive Director Debrin Jenkins
