We provide HCV education to all inmates through print material and "live" presentations. We also provide a TOT (Hepatitis C Support Project [HCSP] Train the Trainer Program) for Peer Educators.

The Train the Trainer workshop is an intensive one-day workshop that provides the necessary skills and knowledge for people to go out into their communities and educate others about hepatitis C. Workshop participants that successfully complete the training will learn the necessary information to provide a basic HCV presentation. In addition, the training workshop will provide background information on HCV, so that trainees will be able address audience questions. Workshop participants that successfully complete the course will be certified as Basic Hepatitis C Educators by the HCSP for a period of one year.
