The SLO Hep C Project is dedicated to providing supportive services for county residents living with heptitis C and educating the public and healthcare providers about viral hepatitis.
The San Luis Obispo County Hepatitis C Task Force was established in 1999 in response to the growing number of hepatitis C cases being seen in the community. Service providers such as the San Luis Obispo County AIDS Support Network, County Drug and Alcohol Program, the Economic Opportunity Commission, the Community Health Centers of the Central Coast, the Veteran's Administration, County Public Health, the North County Connection and others, came together to pro-actively find resources and strategies to fight the epidemic of Hep C within the county. The SLO Hep C Project was established in 2000 with a grant from the California Endowment.
Is It That Time Already?

We know that November seems so far away! But, trust us - it will creep up faster than you know. All of us at ASN and the SLO Hep C Project are already gearing up for our 21st Annual Walk for Life and we hope that you will join us as we raise funds to support the programs that assist over 400 clients here in San Luis Obispo County. This is the second year that the SLO Hep C Project is also a beneficiary! The services we provide can directly translate to better health outcomes for our clients. Here are some of the things we do:
- Assist our clients in gaining or retaining stable housing
- Connect our clients to a steady income and healthcare coverage
- Support our clients in accessing appropriate healthcare
- Educate our clients about their health conditions
- Provide our clients with nutritious food and much-needed toiletries
We also provide education to the greater community, hoping to reduce the risk of transmitting these two preventable diseases. Through our Speakers Bureau, staff presentations and our in-house testing program, we try to ensure a healthier community for us all.
So, spread the word early about our Walk! We are working on our on-line registration and donation site and anticipate that it will be up and running in July. Until then, you can be planning your fund-raising strategies and lacing up your walking shoes to get in shape! We look forward to seeing you on November 3rd!
