About Caribbean Hepatitis C Alliance

The have identified that in Jamaica there is a significant lack of knowledge from both the public and health care professionals about HCV and that this has a negative effect on the testing landscape in Jamaica. They therefore aim to educate health care professionals as the focus of their work.
