Through the Mass General Hospital health centers, the Hepatitis C Program monitors and coordinates services for patients who have tested positive for the Hepatitis C Virus (HCV), and promotes awareness and education about HCV in the community.
The Hepatitis C Program provides identification, medical provider education and intensive follow-up services for patients in need of support to maintain the prescribed treatment.
Working in tandem with the lead physicians at MGH Charlestown and MGH Chelsea HealthCare Centers, the Hep C Outreach Workers organize and facilitate individual and group patient education sessions. The program also provides clinicians working at the health centers with Hep C educational materials and promotes Hepatitis awareness at various community health fairs.
