A New Patient-Centric HIV/HCV Co-Infection Resource
By: Marcus Hopkins, Blogger
This past week, the Community Access National Network (CANN), of which the
HEAL Blog is a part, introduced their latest endeavor - the HIV/HCV Co-Infection
Watch. This new project aims to bring attention to what we at HEAL Blog have
been saying from Day One: the HIV/HCV co-infection crisis in America is not
only looming, but is already here.
As this will be the final HEAL Blog for 2014, I wanted to take this opportunity
to take a look back at what may be one of the most important years for Hepatitis
C. Rather than navel gaze upon my own brilliance, I thought it would be more
appropriate to instead focus on the many successes (and potential opportunities)
that have arisen over the year, as well as to highlight some bright spots
for the future.

The Community Access National Network (CANN) today announced that it is teaming
up with the Partnership for Safe Medicines (PSM) to better educate patients

2006, eighty-two (82) individuals have been charged with selling adulterated,
unapproved or black market medications prescribed for HIV or AIDS patients.
