In the face of recent developments in hepatitis C treatment, enhanced global solidarity for hepatitis B and hepatitis C elimination goals through the World Health Organization’s (WHO) recently-released Global Health Sector Strategy on Viral Hepatitis (2016-2021), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and its partners commissioned the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine to convene an expert committee on the topic. The committee worked in two phases. In the first report, released in April, 2016, it was determined that hepatitis B and C could be eliminated as public health problems in the United States. The second report, coming in late March 2017, outlines a strategy to meet this goal and identifies feasible disease reduction targets for the United States. After the release of this report, CDC Foundation will convene a public meeting for various stakeholders to discuss the report and their roles in implementing the committee’s recommendations.
