Its eight programs focus on building durable public health systems that serve all people. Focus areas include neglected tropical diseases, vaccines, and health systems strengthening. The Task Force received the 2016 Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prizethe world's largest award of its kindin recognition of its extraordinary contributions to alleviating human suffering. PROGRAM BACKGROUND: The Center for Vaccine Equity (CVE) works to assure all people have equal access to life-saving vaccines by expanding availability, supporting vaccine impact studies, and building delivery systems that facilitate access in developing countries. CVE also serves as Secretariat for a number of global health partnerships that advance this mission. Hepatitis B virus (HBV) is a vaccine preventable disease. Although not vaccine preventable, effective interventions are available to prevent hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. Viral hepatitishepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infectionis a large global health problem. In 2015, more than 1.3 million persons died of HBV or HCV infection, more than 325 million persons were living with HBV or HCV infection placing them at risk for premature death, and over 6 million persons became newly infected with HBV or HCV. Reflecting growing international concern, the United Nations called on the world to combat hepatitis. In response, the World Health Organization targeted HBV and HCV for elimination by 2030, defined as a 65% reduction in mortality to 500,000 deaths per year and 90% reduction in incidence to less than 1 million new infections per year. Viral hepatitis elimination is feasible, cost effective and even cost saving. Hepatitis B vaccination and other interventions prevent transmission. Reliable tests accurately detect infection before onset of disease. Treatment of HBV infection and cure of HCV infection prevents liver cancer and mortality. The achievement of HBV and HCV elimination goals globally by 2030 will prevent over 7 million deaths. Currently, HBV and HCV prevention and elimination programs are in various stages of development and disconnected with few opportunities for collaboration in addition, information to guide program development is often not available or is published or presented over time and in diverse locations. Compounding this information gap, programs have limited access to technical experts or opportunities for participation in operational research. Also, countries interested in starting HBV and HCV elimination programs do not have the information and expertise to do so. To assist viral hepatitis elimination, The Task Force for Global Health is developing the Coalition for Global Hepatitis Elimination (GHC). The GHC is bringing together public and private partners to forge consensus on elimination goals, share knowledge and experience among implementing programs, provide technical assistance, generate new knowledge through operational research, and advocate for viral hepatitis elimination. GHC will operate as a technical hub modeled after other Task Force for Global Health disease elimination programs. To improve access to information, the GHC is preparing dashboards of country level data regarding the burden of disease and the implementation of interventions needed for HBV and HCV prevention, testing and treatment. As a first step in this effort, the GHC has received country-level mortality data for HBV and HCV infection. These data are to be collated and analyzed for web-based dissemination on GHC dashboards when the GHC is launched in June 2019. Additional Details PROJECT: Develop National Dashboards for Viral Hepatitis-related Liver Cancer and Mortality ACTIVITIES AND OPPORTUNITIES: With guidance from Coalition Director and CVE Deputy Director, the intern will prepare the following data for presentation on data dashboards: 1) From May June: The intern will review country level data received from the University of Washington Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME). For each country, the intern will collate and analyze hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) related causes of death from acute hepatitis, liver cancer, and cirrhosis, for demographic subpopulations. For each country and country groups, the intern will calculate current estimates, future projections, and temporal trends of HBV and HCV related liver cancer and mortality. Some countries will also have state or provincial data for posting. The intern will also collate and analyze national data for ranking liver cancer as a cause of death in comparison to other causes. The intern will upload data for posting on web-based dashboards and other channels. The goal is to post data for approximately 125 countries. 2) From June August: The intern will search the literature to obtain the most recent estimates of national HBV and HCV seroprevalence including rates per population and absolute numbers living with these infections. The goal is to post data for approximately 75 countries. 3) From June August: The intern will assist the posting of additional data from other sources. The data will include information, analyzed and prepared by others to monitor access to vaccination, testing and treatment services. The goal is to post data for approximately 75 countries.
