About the Hepatitis Outreach Network (HONE™)
Hepatitis Outreach Network (HONE) is a community viral hepatitis prevention, screening and link to care study focused on adult, minority groups in New York City who are at high risk for chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) and chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV).
The goals and objectives of HONE are to:
- Raise awareness and provide education in minority communities in the New York City area at high risk for chronic hepatitis B and C.
- Create a comprehensive hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and ALT screening project in minority communities at high risk in the New York City area.
- Establish a link between screening efforts and appropriate healthcare, including vaccination and access to treatment for chronic hepatitis B and chronic hepatitis C patients.
HONE offers combined HBV and HCV screening at no cost at a variety of health fairs and other events throughout New York City. This study is a collaboration between members of The Mount Sinai Health System Division of Liver Diseases and community physicians who care for minority patients at high risk for chronic HBV and HCV.
HONE is a not for profit program through The Mount Sinai Health System.
The physicians of the Liver Diseases Faculty Practice Associates provide comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services to give patients the best possible chance of living a full, active life. Learn More
