We can’t solve the opioid crisis overnight, but we can work together to reduce the harm opioid addiction inflicts on our communities due to HCV infections.

Impact of HepConnect

HepConnect will support community partnerships that work to implement and expand evidence-based, practical strategies that can have a real impact on the affected populations and surrounding communities.

Additionally, HepConnect will strengthen the capacity of organizations to provide harm reduction services, such as Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) programs, Syringe Exchange Programs (SEPs), prevention programs and navigation services that are a critical part of the continuum of care and proven to reduce infection rates.
