The 'BLOCK HIV/HCV' Project Aims to Eliminate Coinfection of Hep C and HIV
Posted on: 5/21/2019

CME offered

Approximately 25% of all individuals infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) are coinfected with hepatitis C (HCV), according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

A community-based initiative is working to build connections across local and regional care networks to improve medical treatment for patients with hepatitis C, specifically those with the HIV/HCV coinfection.

The goal is to leverage the insights and experience of local and national experts on HCV, HIV, and health policy in the setting of small-group, peer-to-peer education.


The initiative is called "Bringing Local Communities Together to Eliminate Coninfection Through Knowledge and Partnerships" or BLOCK HIV/HCV. 

The BLOCK HIV/HCV gathering takes place on June 24, from 8 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. in Chicago.

There is no fee for this program.
