As a national partner, your participation will help to ensure the success and impact of this critically important campaign—namely, increased hepatitis C awareness, increased hepatitis C testing, increased access to treatment for individuals infected with the hepatitis C virus, and, ultimately, a decrease in the number of people infected with hepatitis C.
