Health and Wellbeing Boards & Hepatitis C


14 May 2014 by HCV Action
This report by HCV Action investigates the prioritisation of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection by Health and Wellbeing Boards (HWBs) across England. The aim of the review is to compare the extent to which local authorities have considered the diagnosis and treatment of hepatitis C in their area, in order to identify the range of local commissioning and treatment practices that exist across England. Evidence was gathered from the most recent Joint Strategic Needs Assessments (JSNA) and Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategies (JHWS) available from local authorities.
