      - New recommendations for health care providers regarding screening for hepatitis C;
      - Promising new developments in treatments for hepatitis C;
      - Mounting public awareness of and concern about hepatitis B and hepatitis C; and
      - The expansion of access to viral hepatitis prevention, diagnosis, care, and treatment offered by the Affordable Care Act.
