On July 28, 2021 the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown University Law Center (O’Neill Institute), the National Viral Hepatitis Roundtable (NVHR), and the Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation (CHLPI) at Harvard Law School, as part of their partnership to study viral hepatitis elimination efforts across the U.S., have released a preliminary rubric to assess states’ capacity for viral hepatitis elimination.

Hep ElimiNATION: A National Evaluation of States’ Capacity for Viral Hepatitis Elimination will assess the policy landscape and programmatic strategies impacting viral hepatitis elimination in the 50 states, Washington, DC, and Puerto Rico, and offer guidance for states’ ongoing efforts to develop viral hepatitis elimination strategies. These efforts aim to support states in the development of a comprehensive plan to meet the World Health Organization’s goal to eliminate hepatitis by 2030.

The preliminary rubric was developed in consultation with more than 40 stakeholders, including advocates, clinicians, government partners, and people who have lived experience with viral hepatitis. It is subject to change, and grades and accompanying resources will be released in late 2021. For more information about the project, visit www.eliminatehep.org.

This project is supported by Gilead Sciences. O’Neill, NVHR and CHLPI retain final editorial control over all content.
