Support for Hepatitis C Elimination in Georgia
The Georgia HCV (hepatitis C virus) elimination program has become globally recognized as a model program, and, as a result, can serve as a technical assistance hub for all aspects of HCV elimination. In order to reach the HCV elimination goals, there are many activities to complete that need personnel, technical and financial support.
In collaboration with the Georgian government and the South Caucasus Field Epidemiology and Laboratory Training Program, this project supports the overall implementation, coordination and monitoring and evaluation of the program.
The project has three main objectives:
- Continually monitor and evaluate the HCV elimination program to improve the program as it progresses and publish lessons learned to inform other elimination programs globally.
- Coordinate activities among the HCV elimination program and partners so that efforts are complementary.
- Provide technical assistance and training to Georgians to ensure the sustainability of the program.
