Service provision to persons with or at risk for hepatitis C (HCV) has become an important goal for local health departments across the nation. The shared routes of HIV and HCV, the high coinfection rate of HIV/HCV, and the lack of federal or state funding to support HCV programs are reasons for integrating hepatitis C screening and treatment services into existing HIV/AIDS programs. Such an integration of health services conserves resources. This article reviews the development and progress of a county public health department program's integration of HIV/AIDS and HCV services and provides recommendations for other HIV/AIDS programs that might be considering integration of HIV/AIDS and HCV services.
