BRIDGE: HCV

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

BRIDGE HCV is an exciting grassroots initiative that taps into the strengths and resources of communities in inner-city and metropolitan areas to provide effective treatment for hepatitis C virus (HCV) in people who inject drugs (PWID). Now, drawing upon dynamic content presented at live small-group meetings for community-based health care professionals, this enduring program will bring the critical content to the greater online learning community. Key learning emphases will be placed on feasibility and efficacy of direct-acting antiviral treatment in PWID, incorporation of harm-reduction principles and practices across the HCV-care continuum, and strategies for clinicians and addiction-services providers to collaboratively reach, test, treat, and cure HCV-positive PWID. Balancing clinical data with real-world experience and insights, this online educational program will give learners a strong base from which to participate in their own community efforts toward local-area HCV micro-elimination.
