Vision: Eliminate viral hepatitis in Tennessee


1.      Reduce new viral hepatitis infections,

2.      Reduce viral hepatitis morbidity and mortality by increasing access to diagnosis and treatment, and

early detection, and rapid response; 2) improving access to prevention, testing, and treatment; and 3) building partnerships and establishing policies to address the viral hepatitis epidemic in Tennessee.
