Why Is This Important?

The number of clients linked to treatment tell us how well we're doing in following up with our clients and ensuring they begin a course of HCV treatment. 

Story Behind the Curve
  Positive Negative
  • 2019 data is missing some data, which may contribute to lower numbers for that year. 
  • 2020 data is preliminary and data is still coming in. 
  • In general, it is hard to track if people are linked to treatment, so these numbers may be an underestimate of reality.
