End Hep C SF, SF Public Health Foundation
San Francisco, California, USA
MissionEnd Hep C SF envisions a San Francisco where hepatitis C is no longer a public health threat, and hepatitis C related health inequities have been eliminated. Our mission is to support all San Franciscans living with and at risk for hepatitis C to maximize their health and wellness. We achieve this through prevention, education, testing, treatment, and linkage to reduce morbidity and mortality related to hepatitis C. We believe that everyone should have equal access to prevention and care regardless of individual characteristics.
What We DoProvide interventions that are evidence based, and continuously review our progress to determine areas where we need to improve, through the regular collection of and use of local data related to hepatitis C.
Work to end stigma about hepatitis C and people living with hepatitis C.
Maximize the health and wellness of people who use drugs by treating them with respect, ensuring access to appropriate services, and empowering them to reduce harm and make choices to improve their health.
Continue to invest in populations that have frequently been characterized as "difficult to engage," as we realize that these groups often have the greatest unmet need for services and support.
