A letter to our membership concerning COVID-19

Dear friends,

COVID-19 Impact Survey Results

NVHR and other leading viral hepatitis advocacy organizations launched a survey in June to assess the impact of COVID-19 on viral hepatitis care.

The results are stark and show that public health departments and community organizations have had to limit hepatitis treatment as a result of the pandemic.

In particular, nearly two-thirds of community-based organizations providing viral hepatitis services have received inadequate or no funding to adapt services during COVID-19.

Furthermore, more than half of community-based organizations survey had to furlough or lay off staff or reduce operations due to COVID-19. The survey shows that vaccinations, testing, and treating viral hepatitis has decreased as a result of COVID-19.

While addressing the COVID-19 pandemic is of utmost importance, NVHR strongly supports actions that will ensure that the viral hepatitis public health crisis is actively addressed and urges support to combat the viral hepatitis epidemic.
