Health Equity Action Plan (HEAP)

Hepatitis C-Advanced Liver Disease Disparities Dashboard

VA's Veterans Health Administration's Office of Health Equity developed the Hepatitis C-Advanced Liver Disease Disparities Dashboard as part of its efforts to target and accelerate care of Veterans with hepatitis C and advanced liver disease (ALD). The new resource promotes equitable diagnosis and treatment of underserved Veterans with hepatitis C and ALD nationally and compliments existing clinical hepatitis and liver disease dashboards available in some Veterans Integrated Service Networks or VISNs.

The dashboard works by using a set of criteria, including age, gender, geography, service era along with and race and ethnicity, to distinguish Veteran groups at highest risk for Advanced Liver Disease (ALD) as a result of hepatitis C.
