Welcome to HCVcme.org™
In early 2010, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) released a report highlighting serious issues related to the current state of hepatitis B and hepatitis C (HCV) in the US. The conclusion was that the current approach to the prevention and control of these diseases is not working.
The complexities of managing HCV are even greater among certain populations where the virus is highly prevalent, such as African Americans, US Veterans and active military personnel, injection drug users, and those patients who are at increased risk for HIV.
This Website will provide health care professionals with education specific to these patient populations on HCV diagnosis, treatment, management, and timely information on new and emerging therapeutic options.
