About

The Hepatitis C Community Alliance to Test and Treat (HepCCATT) is an unprecedented public health collaboration. Our mission is to significantly reduce the number of people with undiagnosed and untreated hepatitis C infections among Chicago’s most highly affected communities.

A model initiative, HepCCATT is funded by a cooperative agreement between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes Chicago (ECHO-Chicago) program at the University of Chicago Medicine.

By leveraging the strengths and diversity of our partners, HepCCATT works to significantly reduce the number of undiagnosed and untreated hepatitis C infections in Chicago—and to establish a model for public health collaborations to expand and improve hepatitis C testing and care nationwide.
