Mission

The Hepatitis Education Project is committed to improving health of underserved communities disproportionately impacted by viral hepatitis. Low-barrier services: Our service delivery model is designed to simplify access to care and help overcome barriers that are derived from social and community determinants of health equity. Our goal is to help people access the support and services they need, where they are, when they need it, without judgement. Harm reduction: Meeting people where they are at and the ideology of reducing harm is a guiding principle for our programs and services, which governs how we engage with individuals. We actively promote evidence-based policies and practical strategies that keeps people safe and reduces the negative consequences associated with drug use.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
