Event description

Description

Several large cities, including San Diego and Detroit, are experiencing large outbreaks of Hepatitis A among homeless persons, drug users and some service providers. Increased mortality and hospitalizations have been common in the outbreaks. This briefing is aimed at health care providers and social service organizations working with the homeless in Houston. To date, Houston has not had an increase in Hepatitis A, but we need to be prepared. This event will provide background on what the Houston Health Department is doing.
