The India Hepatitis C (HCV) team works towards addressing barriers to patient access to care and fosters a healthy competitive marketplace for essential HCV diagnostic testing and treatment. The team works closely with Ministry of Health, diagnostics manufacturers, and other multilateral organizations to increase access to testing and treatment, accelerate entry and uptake of new innovative products for HCV testing and treatment, and lower prices for HCV commodities.
The HCV team has been providing strategic and operational support to the government of Punjab’s public health program for Hepatitis-C since 2016. It has supported the program in developing costed strategic and operational plans, monitoring and evaluation tools to monitor and measure program performance, and designed active screening strategies through identification of high-risk geographies and populations. The HCV team has also been working at the national level with the National AIDS control organization (NACO) to develop their strategic and operational plans for management of Hepatitis-C among the HIV patient population.
The Manager – HCV program will be responsible for driving CHAI’s Hepatitis-C strategy in alignment with the development objectives of India’s central and state governments. The Manager will also lead the HCV team as it achieves operational excellence, expands CHAI’s scope of engagement and involvement with the HCV program of Punjab, and engages with national level stakeholders at NACO and National Program for Viral Hepatitis.
