Treating Hepatitis C in the NYC Jail System
Presented By: Justin Chan, MD, MPH
Brief overview/description: People detained in correctional settings have a high prevalence of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection and are underserved by medical clinics in the community. Jails and prisons are settings where large scale HCV screening can occur and highly effective direct-acting antiviral therapy can be delivered. This lecture describes the HCV cascade of care in the NYC jail system and presents outcomes of the HCV treatment program. It reviews challenges that need to be addressed as these programs are scaled up.
