Mapping Project Aims To Fill In Hepatitis C Data Gaps

Center for Global Health Policy’s “Science Speaks”: Data mapping highlights realities of global hepatitis C impacts, resources
Antigone Barton, senior writer and editor of “Science Speaks,” discusses findings from a report by mapCrowd, a crowdsourcing project launched by Médecins du Monde and the Treatment Action Group that is designed to gather and publicize data on hepatitis C. Barton writes, “The report notes inadequate surveillance and data collection has yielded insufficient data on the burden of hepatitis C among people who inject drugs. The team that put the project together hopes to change that, as well as other gaps in hepatitis responses, and is inviting volunteers who can contribute data to mapCrowd to let them know…” (2/10).
