In a blog post of the release of the Action Plan.

Signaling the commitment of HHS to combating and treating viral hepatitis, the Action Plan will help HHS improve its current efforts to prevent new cases of viral hepatitis and related disease by 1) identifying steps that can be taken to reach specific goals; 2) leveraging opportunities to improve coordination of viral hepatitis activities across HHS operating divisions; 3) setting priorities for HHS to develop public-health and primary-care infrastructure needed for viral hepatitis prevention and care at the federal, state, and local levels; and 4) providing a framework for HHS to engage other governmental agencies and nongovernmental organizations in viral hepatitis prevention and care.
