Hepatitis C Team

About the Hepatitis C Team

As part of the interdisciplinary Wake County Health & Humans Services – HIV/STD Community Program, the Hepatitis C Team is designed to provide a range of services to meet the unique needs of the population served. These community-based services include Hepatitis C confirmatory testing, Hepatitis C bridge counseling & case management, Hepatitis C education & harm reduction strategies, linkage to medical care for Hepatitis C treatment, enrollment in eligible community resources, and many others.

If you suspect you may be positive for Hepatitis C and/or have recently been diagnosed with Hepatitis C, Wake County Health & Humans Services is here to help! The Hepatitis C team offers the free services of a Clinical Social Worker/Bridge Counselor who will help you navigate the process, from getting connected to a treating provider all the way through to achieving a cure. A Bridge Counselor is a short-term case manager for clients who are diagnosed with Hepatitis C.
