Featured Partner Banner and Link to Their Website

The CDC NPIN Featured Partner resource offers HIV/AIDS, viral hepatitis, STD, and TB prevention-focused organizations a platform to showcase their services, programs, and materials. Our goal is to highlight the work of CDC's prevention partners and encourage partners to connect with each other to share information and strategies. Organizations are nominated by CDC or their peers, or are self-nominated. Those selected are featured on the NPIN Web site for the month.

National Training Center for Integrating Hepatitis into HIV/STD Prevention Services Overview

People at Risk for Hepatitis: Education, Risk Assessment and Counseling; Vaccinate for HAV, HBV; Test for Chronic HBV, HCV; Medical Management The National Training Center for Integrating Hepatitis into HIV/STD Prevention Services (NTC) provides training to frontline workers in community-based organizations (CBOs) and clinics on viral hepatitis prevention, diagnosis, management, treatment, and integration. NTC works to decrease the burden of viral hepatitis in at-risk populations by advocating for and facilitating the integration of viral hepatitis, HIV, and sexually transmitted disease (STD) prevention and services into CBOs and clinics through the provision of science-based, practice-focused training targeting frontline workers employed in these organizations.

Viral Hepatitis, STDs, and HIV are preventable diseases. Despite this, it is estimated that up to five million people nationwide are chronically infected with hepatitis B virus or hepatitis C virus (HCV), and many of them do not know it. Approximately 25–35 percent of all the people living with AIDS are also co-infected with HCV, and chronic HCV infection is now a leading cause of death among people with AIDS.

Because some prevention strategies and populations affected by HIV, STDs, and viral hepatitis are similar, public health officials and professional associations have advocated for the integration of hepatitis prevention with existing HIV and STD prevention programs and services. NTC’s primary goal is to contribute substantially to achieving CDC’s Division of Viral Hepatitis Healthy People 2010 and beyond objectives to reduce rates of viral hepatitis in adults 19 years of age and older in the United States.
