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

  ABOUT THE HCV DASHBOARD  

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection 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. In recent years, there has been an increase in HCV among young people who inject drugs (PWID).

Many people with HCV are unaware they are infected. Yet, current highly effective direct acting antiviral therapies cure this disease with minimal side effects, making it possible to eliminate HCV.

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