About The Hepatitis C Disease Index
Health care practitioners and policymakers now have access to important information about the prevalence of hepatitis C.
Whether it is evaluating hepatitis C at the national, state, county, metropolitan statistical level or federal or state congressional district level – even zip code – users will be able to distinguish how this disease is impacting various aging populations; evaluate gender-related and racial differences; and define where healthcare resources should be allocated to reduce the risk of hepatitis C and associated co-morbidities.
This web-based tool is a tremendous resource for researchers, corporations, and health-care organizations that need to understand and pinpoint disparities at the zip-code level in order to target hepatitis C interventions for specific populations. It also provides focus and perspective for educational, advocacy, and public-affairs initiatives.
The data and associated maps that are available through the Hepatitis C Disease Index were developed by the National Minority Quality Forum (www.nmqf.org).
