To commemorate today as World Hepatitis Day 2021, The O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown University Law Center (O’Neill Institute), the National Viral Hepatitis Roundtable (NVHR), and the Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation (CHLPI) of Harvard Law School, as part of their partnership to study viral hepatitis elimination efforts across the United States, released a preliminary rubric to assess states’ capacity for viral hepatitis elimination.
Hep ElimiNATION: A National Evaluation of States’ Capacity for Viral Hepatitis Elimination will assess the policy landscape and programmatic strategies impacting viral hepatitis elimination in the 50 states, Washington, DC, and Puerto Rico, and offer guidance for states’ ongoing efforts to develop viral hepatitis elimination strategies.
This rubric was developed in consultation with more than 40 stakeholders including advocates, clinicians, government partners, and people who have lived experience with viral hepatitis. The rubric is subject to change. Grades and accompanying resources will be released in late 2021.
