Hep C Free AZ

The Southwest Recovery Alliance is a regional grassroots organization dedicated to the implementation of evidence based public health strategies, policy transformation, and justice reform in Arizona and throughout the Southwest.

Through 2024, the Southwest Recovery Alliance will focus on building alliances that amplify the voices of people living with Hepatitis C (HCV) and HIV,  increasing statewide awareness on HCV/HIV prevention and elimination, all while maintaining and expanding our harm reduction education campaigns and direct services throughout the region. We will also continue our work amplifying the voices of people impacted by racialized drug policies, people experiencing poverty and housing insecurity, and people who have been incarcerated.

Below are some of the action items and demands that we will use to build an AZ Hep C Elimination Coalition in 2020:
1. Enhance HCV prevention, testing and linkage to care services for people who inject drugs, people who are incarcerated, men who have sex with men and other populations disproportionately impacted by HCV infection
2. Expand HCV screening and testing to identify people living with HCV who are unaware of their status and link them to care
3. Provide access to clinically appropriate and affordable HCV treatment without restrictions and ensure the availability of necessary supportive services for all Arizonans living with HCV.
4. Enhance AZ HCV Surveillance, set and track HCV elimination targets and make information available to the public
5. Commit AZ government and elected officials, public health professionals, HCV experts and industry partners to leadership and ownership of the AZ Plan to Eliminate HCV alongside community members living with and affected by HCV.
 
We will call on Governor Ducey, the Arizona Legislature, and industry partners to make a joint commitment to hepatitis C elimination, and for appointment of a formal AZ Hepatitis C Elimination Task Force composed of survivors, providers and other stakeholders.

Our mission

Encourage and motivate the implementation of harm reduction interventions, public health strategies, drug policy transformation, and justice reform in Arizona and surrounding states through leadership, advocacy, resource and policy development, and education.

What is harm reduction?

Harm Reduction emphasizes tolerance, respect for the personal choices of others and respect for human rights. It favors evidence over anecdote, courage over cowardice and doing what is right over what is state sanctioned. Our message is “We love you, and respect your dignity as a human being.” It means doing what has to be done to protect individual and community health in the face of opposition from all quarters.
