Project - Improved estimation of Hepatitis C prevalence and outcomes
State-level estimates of prevalence of chronic HCV infection are critical to understanding variation in HCV burden in the United States, and to informing local prevention, treatment, and advocacy efforts. This project is using statistical modeling approaches to synthesize CDC surveillance, census, and other data sources to yield the first systematic estimates of HCV prevalence for each US state and the District of Columbia. This project is conducted in partnership with scientists in the Division of Viral Hepatitis.
