"Now available from @ATTCnetwork, a guide to help integrate #hepatitisC prevention and treatment into OTP settings. Be sure to check out “Your Guide to Integrating HCV Services into Opioid Treatment Programs.” https://bit.ly/2PrXsec

The opioid epidemic has resulted in significant increases in the hepatitis c virus (#HCV) among people who inject drugs, accounting for 23% of new infections. HCV is completely curable, and testing and treatment are the path to cure. Opioid Treatment Providers (OTPs) play a critical role in comprehensive approaches to addressing HCV and this guide is one tool to help.

Your Guide to Integrating HCV Services into Opioid Treatment Programs can help build the capacity of publicly funded OTPs to integrate HCV prevention and treatment services into their programs. This guide may also be useful for Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), community and healthcare coalitions, nonprofit organizations and other substance use disorder and HCV treatment providers."

#ThrowbackThursday The ADAP report has come so far over the last 24 years! Joe Kelly, NASTAD's Senior Director of Strategic Partnerships, recently shared the first report he wrote in 1996. https://bit.ly/3kdiuLR

The 1996 report was the first to document severe ADAP funding shortfalls in states. Later that year, it helped lead the first dedicated federal funding directly for ADAPs.

Over these years, the ADAP funding has increased from $92.1 million to $2 billion per year. A constant increase in budget allows individuals of all communities to access effective and comprehensive health care. #EndtheHIVEpidemic
