  • Monitor and evaluate interventions and their outcomes
  • Educate the public, partners, and stakeholders on policies including state-mandated HBV and HCV reporting and reimbursement for recommended testing and treatment
  • Work with state agencies to improve HBV and HCV testing and treatment in all settings and integrate HBV and/or HCV testing in CDC supported programs
