    Building on the success of the nation’s first comprehensive cross-agency action plan, HHS released a 3-year update of the plan in April 2014. The updated plan builds on the foundation of the original action plan and seeks to harness:

      - 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.
