The purpose of the HCV Dashboard is to measure, track and disseminate actionable information on progress towards eliminating hepatitis C as a public health problem in New York State.

 ABOUT THE HCV DASHBOARD  

Hepatitis C (HCV) is a major public health problem causing substantial illness and death, including cirrhosis and liver cancer. Nationally, three out of four people living with HCV are persons born between 1945 and 1965, but most new infections occur because of injection drug use. Many people with HCV are unaware they are infected. Yet, current highly effective direct-acting antiviral therapies can cure this disease with minimal side effects, making it possible to eliminate HCV.

In November 2021, New York State (NYS) released its HCV Elimination Plan, which provides recommendations that will lead NYS towards eliminating hepatitis C as a public health problem. Recommendations include five areas of focus: Prevention, Testing and Linkage to Care, Care and Treatment Access, Social Determinants of Health, and Surveillance, Data, and Metrics.

Plan recommendations include the creation of a dashboard system to track and disseminate timely statewide, regional or county-level information on key HCV elimination outcomes to the initiative’s stakeholders, including people infected and affected by HCV, to convey progress towards achieving the goals and targets of the initiative.

By making state and local HCV data available to all stakeholders, the HCV Dashboard will track New York State’s progress towards HCV elimination.
