The Hepatitis Education Project (HEP) is committed to improving health of underserved communities disproportionately impacted by viral hepatitis.
By making information, resources, and health services readily available for people affected by hepatitis, HEP strives to realize its vision of a world where everybody has access to affordable, high-quality care to support all their health needs. Founded in 1993 by a coalition of clinicians and patients, HEP has grown from a small group of volunteers to a staff of 19. Today, HEP still provides free hepatitis screening and vaccines, but its services now include a needle exchange, low-barrier prescriptions for buprenorphine, anonymous drug testing for participants, and medical case management for hepatitis C treatment.
