About the Task Force

Recognizing that San Francisco had been hit hard by the HCV epidemic, representatives of public health organizations, educators and civic groups convened in 2008 with the purpose of creating a local response.

In May 2009, Mayor Gavin Newsom appointed a panel to serve on the San Francisco Hepatitis C Task Force and charged the group with developing a comprehensive set of recommendations to address the hepatitis C epidemic.

Our goals and recommendations were published in 2010 and are updated annually. They are available at www.sfhepc.org.

The Task Force meets monthly and meetings are open to the general public.
