USET Hepatitis C/HIV/Substance Use Disorder Clinical Training
presented by the USET Tribal Health Program Support Department
During the pandemic, Tribal Nations saw a rise in injectable drug use. This resulted in an increased number of new Hepatitis C (HCV) and HIV infections. People who inject drugs (PWID) are at high risk for HIV and HCV infections. USET Tribal Health Program Support is providing this important training to its member Tribal Nations to enhance knowledge for prevention, harm-reduction, and clinical approaches.
