NVHR: Administration's 2011 Budget Proposal Shortchanges Five Million Americans Afflicted with Chronic Viral Hepatitis

NVHR is a coalition of more than 150 public, private, and voluntary organizations dedicated to reducing the incidence of infection, morbidity, and mortality from chronic viral hepatitis that afflicts more than 5 million Americans. www.nvhr.org
