Hepatitis C is the most common co-infection among those living with HIV. Compared to the 7,988 people living with HIV in Minnesota, our state has almost 41,000 people living with a past or present Hepatitis C infection. Many of the at-risk populations targeted by HIV or STI educators would also benefit from up-to-date, accurate information on Hepatitis C. Hepatits C information is particularly relevant to professionals who work at Syringe Exchanges, Treatmetn Centers, and with populations exiting Jails and Prisons. This 1-day course with an emphasis on skill-building prepares individuals to become community educators knowledgeable in Hepatitis C.
No prior knowledge is expected for this course.
