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. The Minnesota AIDS Project TEACH program has expanded its reach to address the Hepatitis C epidemic. Many of the at-risk populations targeted by HIV or STI educators would also benefit from up-to-date, accurate information on Hepatitis C. This 1-day course with an emphasis on skill-building prepares individuals to become community educators knowledgeable in Hepatitis C.
This training will provide:
- Experience in presenting this information to a variety of different audiences.
- In-depth education on Hepatitis C transmission, prevention, testing, and treatment options.
- Opportunities to teach-back the information they have learned in a small group setting.
- Games and curriculum modules to use in presentations in the community setting.
