The State of Missouri provides no funding for HCV testing, referral and treatment. In order to provide these services, the DHSS Hepatitis C Program partners with LPHAs, CBOs, educational institutions, corporate entities, and non-profit organizations to provide targeted testing and referral for care around the State.

Our hepatitis A and hepatitis B vaccination program for adults began in 2003 with six local public health departments and has since expanded to over 90/115 county and local health departments in the Missouri. Immunizations are provided to adults in clinic and outreach settings who are able to identify at least one risk factor (which includes unstated self-perceived risk as an option) as an activity he/she has engaged in at some time. A list of these risk factors is provided to the client.
