The purpose of the program is to support a one year expansion of the viral hepatitis testing initiative to increase early identification of persons with chronic hepatitis B and hepatitis C (or both), with a focus on medically underserved populations and populations that are disproportionately affected by these infections. In accordance with the HHS Viral Hepatitis Action Plan (available at http://www.hhs.gov/ash/initiatives/hepatitis), this FOA focuses on CDC’s commitment to ensure that new cases of viral hepatitis are prevented and that persons who are already infected are tested, informed of their infection, provided with counseling, and linked to care, treatment, and prevention services.

Category A - Early Identification and Linkage to Care for Foreign-born Persons with Hepatitis B
The purpose of Category A is to support and enhance the capacity of awardees to (1) increase the identification of chronic hepatitis B, focusing on foreign-born persons from intermediate (2%-7% prevalence) or high (>8% prevalence) hepatitis B endemic countries (which includes most countries in Asia and Africa) and (2) improve linkage and access to care, treatment, and preventive services for HBV infected individuals.

Category B - Testing for HCV Infection and Enhancing Linkage to Medical Care for Persons with Hepatitis C
The purpose of Category B is to support and enhance the ability of awardees to increase testing for HCV infection, increase the number of persons diagnosed with HCV infection, and improve access to care services for HCV-infected persons. Category B funds from this FOA can only be used for diagnostic testing (anti-HCV and HCV Nat (qualitative or quantitative) Funding cannot be used for further testing related to treatment decision or medical equipment.
