Developing a Community Response Plan for an Outbreak of Hepatitis and HIV among Persons Who Inject Drugs: How a Rural Community in Virginia is Preparing for and Addressing this Vulnerability

Join NACCHO and the LENOWISCO Health District in the Commonwealth of Virginia on Tuesday, April 10 from 3:00 – 4:00 pm ET for a webinar about the development of a community response plan to address vulnerability to the rapid dissemination of hepatitis and HIV among persons who inject drugs (PWID). This webinar will review the process the LENOWISCO Health District undertook to develop its Community Response Plan, including assessing risk, conducting a tabletop exercise, and convening town hall meetings to gather community feedback and increase community knowledge of the infectious disease consequences of the opioid epidemic. The Plan addresses all phases of an emergency situation resulting from a hepatitis or HIV outbreak about PWID – preparedness, response, and recovery – which will be reviewed during the webinar. Learn more about the webinar and/or register to attend. A confirmation email with information on how to join the webinar will be sent to you after you register.
