Development of a guide and rationale for integrating HCV treatment into Ryan White HIV services. This guide is the latest in a series of technical assistance resources from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to assist Ryan White agencies in tackling HCV care (see http://hab.hrsa.gov and http://careacttarget.org). While development of this guide was undertaken prior to release of the Federal HHS Action Plan on Hepatitis, the guide aligns with the plan’s many insights and strategies for improving hepatitis services (see Combating the Silent Epidemic, HHS Action Plan for the Prevention, Care and Treatment of Viral Hepatitis, May 2011, available at http://aids.gov).
