Message from our friends at National Viral Hepatitis Roundtable (NVHR - http://nvhr.org)

July 25th, 2014, is the second annual National African American Hepatitis C Action Day. The day is designed to heighten public awareness about the devastating impact of the hepatitis C epidemic on African American communities. African Americans are twice as likely as whites to have been infected with hepatitis C. Death related to the hepatitis C virus is almost double among African Americans compared with non-Hispanic whites.

The National Black Leadership Commission on AIDS, Inc., the Coalition on Positive Health Empowerment, and the Harm Reduction Coalition are again cosponsoring National African American Hepatitis C Action Day, a national community mobilization initiative aimed at reducing the high incidence of hepatitis C infection in African American communities by drawing attention to this neglected health disparity and promoting education, testing, and treatment. A toolkit is available to help organizations plan activities around this day.

NVHR strongly supports National African American Hepatitis C Action Day and urges everyone to supports its efforts to increase hepatitis C awareness, testing, and access to medical care and treatment for African Americans.
