Since the creation of the first viral hepatitis plan in 2004 several documents and advancements have been released that help Iowa plan and prioritize this revision of our hepatitis plan. The Institute of Medicine report identified that current approach to the prevention and control of chronic hepatitis B and hepatitis C is not working. As a remedy, the IOM recommends increased knowledge and awareness about chronic viral hepatitis among health care providers, social service providers, and the public; improved surveillance for hepatitis B and hepatitis C; and better integration of viral hepatitis services.
