The California Hepatitis C Task Force

About The California Hepatitis C Task Force

Our mission

The California Hepatitis C Task Force mission is to drive policy that removes barriers to viral hepatitis treatment and promote best practices for the delivery of evidence based treatments for viral hepatitis by raising awareness, promoting partnerships and mobilizing resources to improve viral hepatitis education, prevention, screening, and reporting.

What we do

We provide support, networking for developing and existing community organizations, reinforcing local efforts for better access to care for those affected with viral hepatitis.


We act as a common voice for hepatitis patients on the local, state and federal level. We passionately take policy positions which favor patients and their access to care. We use grassroots support to drive legislation that puts patients' care first. Read more about our advocacy »
