American Liver Foundation Applauds Expansion of Hepatitis C Screening in President's Budget Proposal

Statement from Lorraine Stiehl, Chief Executive Officer, American Liver Foundation

FAIRFIELD, N.J., March 10, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — “We applaud President Biden’s budget proposal to expand hepatitis C screening, testing, treatment, prevention, and monitoring. The proposed subscription model for drugs to treat hepatitis C and related infrastructure support would be an important step forward towards increasing access to these liver-saving treatments. We thank the President and his administration for their leadership in addressing this critical issue.”

“We also ask that the Administration take similar action for nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), a form of liver disease affecting 80-100 million Americans, most of whom are unaware they even have it. NAFLD is a growing epidemic and can be life-threatening without early screening and accurate diagnosis.”

“We urge Congress to include NAFLD as part of the budget proposal this year and to make it a priority in order to improve the lives of all those affected by this disease.”
