Hepatitis C Elimination Task Force

Established in January 2017, the HCV Elimination Task Force aims to reduce the number of new Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) transmissions to zero. Emerging from a July 2016 Hepatitis C conference, this task force is led by the AIDS Foundation of Chicago and convenes representatives from the medical, public policy and governmental communities to work toward an end to HCV in Illinois.
