What is the HEAL Coalition?

In 2012 the Hepatitis: Education, Advocacy & Leadership (HEAL) Coalition - a project of the Community Access National Network (CANN) - was launched to provide an interactive national platform whereby we identify relevant issues facing people infected with Viral Hepatitis, as well as facilitate the ongoing framework for appropriate treatment guidelines for this population. HEAL also addresses the unique needs of people co-infected with HIV and Hepatitis C (HCV).

HEAL is committed to bringing members of the medical community, HIV/AIDS community, HCV community and healthcare & pharmaceutical industries together to engage in constructive dialogue about strategies surrounding new HCV treatments and their potential interactions with treatments for HIV-infection.
