Preparing for Ebola

CDC Conference call from  Tuesday October 14th

Preparing for Ebola: What U.S. Hospitals Can Learn From Emory Healthcare and Nebraska Medical Center


The Ebola outbreak in West Africa has increased the possibility of patients traveling from the impacted countries to U.S. hospitals. A few patients with Ebola virus disease have been medically evacuated to receive care in U.S. hospitals. Recently, the first case of Ebola virus disease was diagnosed in the United States in a person who traveled to Dallas, Texas from West Africa; this patient passed away on October 8, 2014. CDC and our partners are taking precautions to prevent the spread of Ebola within the United States. During this COCA Call, the presenters will focus on healthcare systems preparedness, and participants will learn how Emory Healthcare and Nebraska Medical Center prepared for patients with Ebola and the lessons learned.

Please note: the focus of this call will be healthcare systems preparedness, not clinical management of the patients with Ebola.

NVHR Fact Sheet: Why Screen for HCV in Uncertain Treatment Climate

In response to reluctance among some providers to test their patients for hepatitis C due to the current treatment access challenges, NVHR has released a new fact sheet entitled HCV: Why Screen in an Uncertain Treatment Climate. This fact sheet outlines the many benefits of hepatitis C screening and why people deserve to know if they have a potentially fatal disease. You can download this fact sheet here.

Please continue to check our program resources page for additional materials and information.

Last Push for Viral Hepatitis Testing Act Co-Sponsors

NVHR Program Partner Spotlight

Hep Free Hawai`i (HFH) is a grassroots campaign started by hepatitis advocates in Hawai`i to bring attention to the epidemic of chronic hepatitis B and C and liver disease in our islands. Through increasing awareness, HFH hopes to encourage everyone in Hawai`i to learn their hepatitis status, and for those living with hepatitis or other liver disease to access the care they need to live healthy lives. HFH has created two great handouts to support patients and providers to expand screening efforts for viral hepatitis. Both handouts are featured on our program resources page.

Syringe Exchange Program BACKGROUND:

In 2009, Congress removed the ban on federal funding for syringe exchange programs (SEPs) that had been in place since 1989 in the FY 2010 Labor-HHS bill on condition that localities must certify no objections from health and law enforcement on location.

  • The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued guidance in 2010 allowing the use of federal funding for syringe exchange.

  • The US Surgeon General certified in 2011 that syringe exchange reduces both the rate of HIV infections and substance abuse.

  • Seven States and one city were approved by CDC to use their federal HIV prevention funding for SEPs in FY 2010. 20 states and cities had submitted plans to use federal funding for SEPs before December 2011.
