An estimated 20-25% of people living with HIV in the U.S. are co-infected with Hepatitis C. “People who are co-infected with HIV and HCV are a priority population for HCV prevention, diagnosis, and treatment because liver-related death is common among this population,” observed Corinna Dan, R.N., M.P.H., Viral Hepatitis Policy Advisor in the HHS Office of HIV/AIDS and Infectious Disease Policy.

“HIV/HCV C-Infection” is a new, free, online curriculum offers healthcare providers and health profession educators training on HIV/Hepatitis C (HCV) co-infection, including prevention, screening, diagnosis, and treatment recommendations. HRSA’s Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program’s AIDS Education and Training Centers (AETC) National Coordinating Resource Center developed the evidence-based curriculum. The goal of this curriculum is to provide an evidence-based online curriculum for healthcare providers and trainers of healthcare providers to increase their knowledge on human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) co-infection among people of color in the United States and its territories Topics covered include prevention, screening, diagnosis and treatment recommendations as well as barriers and other co-factors that may impede optimal treatment outcomes for co-infected people of color.
