Seven Indicators Used to Measure Progress toward Elimination
Unique to the national progress report is a new set of seven standardized viral hepatitis indicators, each with annual targets and accompanying 2020 goals.
1 Target for 2015 assumes a constant (linear) rate of change from the observed baseline (2014) to the 2020 goal 2 Per 100,000 U.S. population
Met or exceeded current annual target
Not met—moved toward annual target in most recent data year
Not met—no change or moved away from annual target in most recent data year
The Nation’s Progress toward Reducing the Burden of HAV, HBV, and HCV
This report demonstrates that much work remains to meet our national targets and ultimately eliminate viral hepatitis as a public health threat in the United States. CDC will continue to monitor the burden of viral hepatitis in the nation, report changes in performance measures and indicators of health outcomes, and share progress in toward achieving our goals.
