In collaboration with the National Harm Reduction Coalition, the CLA convenes monthly virtual HCV Provider Networking meetings with enduring education, networking and actionable information. The HCV Provider Network reaches clinicians to educate on the importance of harm reduction services and as it relates to hepatitis C prevention and actively engages them to become advocates to inspire change. Members of the HCV Provider Network serve on the central Appalachia Viral Hepatitis Elimination Summit planning committee. HCV Provider Network members will also serve as mentors, educators and planning committee members for the Learning Lab Program. The HCV Provider Network will actively advocate to expand harm reduction services within their communities through education, activism and support. The Network will offer expert testimony to bring down statutory barriers, provide trainings and education to preserve harm reduction services, access to hepatitis C screening, treatment and linkage to care.
