About: HepVu is an interactive online resource that visualizes the first standardized state-level estimates of people with past or current Hepatitis C infection across the United States. These estimates were generated by Emory University’s Coalition for Applied Modeling for Prevention (CAMP), a project supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Who We Are

HepVu is a Powered By AIDSVu project presented by the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University in partnership with Gilead Sciences, Inc.

State-level Hepatitis C antibody prevalence estimates were derived from an Emory University Coalition for Applied Modeling for Prevention (CAMP) modeling project, “Estimation of State-level Prevalence of Hepatitis C Virus Infection, US States and District of Columbia, 2010,” which was published in the peer-reviewed journal Clinical Infectious Diseases.

The development of HepVu was guided by the following group of viral hepatitis experts:

  • Ronald Valdiserri, MD, MPH Senior Research Associate, Johns Hopkins University

  • Timothy M. Block, Professor, Co‐Founder and President, Hepatitis B Foundation and Baruch S. Blumberg Institute

  • Ryan Clary, Executive Director, The National Viral Hepatitis Roundtable

  • Dawn Fishbein, MD, Scientific Director, Viral Hepatitis Research, MedStar Health Research Institute

  • Jim Galbraith, MD Associate Professor, UAB Emergency Medicine Department

  • Charles Howell, MD Chair of Medicine, Howard University Hospital

  • Gregorio Millett, Vice President and Director, Public Policy, amfAR

  • Shauna Onofrey, Viral Hepatitis Surveillance Coordinator, Massachusetts Department of Health

  • Murray Penner, Executive Director, NASTAD

  • Alexandra Shirreffs, Viral Hepatitis Prevention Coordinator, Philadelphia Health Department

  • John Ward, MD, Director, Viral Hepatitis Program, Division of Viral Hepatitis, National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD and TB Prevention

Powered By AIDSVu projects use the existing AIDSVu.org infrastructure to help visualize complex data from other projects to inform public health.

Mission

The National Viral Hepatitis Roundtable is a broad coalition working to fight, and ultimately end, the hepatitis B and hepatitis C epidemics. We seek an aggressive response from policymakers, public health officials, medical and health care providers, the media, and the general public through our advocacy, education, and technical assistance.

Vision

NVHR believes an end to the hepatitis B and C epidemics is within our reach and can be achieved through addressing stigma and health disparities, removing barriers to prevention, care and treatment, and ensuring respect and compassion for all affected communities.
