Empowering People to be Ambassadors of their Own Health Since 1997.

S.H.A.P.E. Supporting Hepatitis Awareness through Program Enhancement

The overall objective of SHAPE is to provide capacity building assistance  tools to integrate HCV awareness, screening and care within a health facility’s existing infrastructure and culture.  SHAPE tools have been developed to improve the HCV standard of care within health systems to routinely include HCV screening, testing, linkage to cure, and support.

Greenlight HCV

GREENLIGHT Hepatitis C will provide guidance and information for step-by-step integration and development of hepatitis C testing, patient identification, linkage to CURE and long-term support for those affected by hepatitis C and the people who care for them.

The  information  provided primarily targets health service providers; however, individuals with HCV, or friends and family may find this information helpful, too.  For individual assistance with hepatitis C,  we invite you to review  the  Caring Ambassadors  Program and  Hepatitis C pages of our website.

Enjoy the learning.          Spread the word.

Thank you for your interest in promoting hepatitis C awareness and treatment!
