Commitment to Guiding Principles
MISSION •To empower Hawaii’s ohana to promote liver health and wellness •To raise awareness and increase access for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of liver disease, especially viral hepatitis and related harms •To erase stigma, social inequity, and health disparity surrounding communities affected by liver disease VISION •To create a Hawaii free of hepatitis and other liver disease •To promote liver health by integrating culturally appropriate services within a comprehensive system of care CORE VALUES •Harm Reduction. We practice and support non-punitive and non-judgmental approaches to public health that meet people where they are and celebrate positive change, with the goal of minimizing the harms of actions that lead to adverse social and health outcomes. •Social Justice. We promote health equity and empower individuals with an uncompromising dedication to eliminating the stigmas and systemic injustices impacting the communities we serve and represent through education, advocacy and partnerships. •Intersectionality. We build sustainable relationships with traditional and non-traditional partners that are mutually beneficial, client-centered, and continually growing. We recognize that success in eliminating hepatitis means addressing other related health and social inequities. •Aloha. We carry a deep sense of love for our ohana, and we acknowledge the importance of Native Hawaiian values to our community. We strive to act in a respectful manner that is both culturally appropriate and carries the spirit of aloha.
I commit to these guiding principles when participating in the planning process.
Scope of Plan
At the in-person meeting on July 28, the planning group agreed to create a plan that focused on both viral hepatitis B and C. The plan would cover efforts from 2020 to 2030, in alignment with the World Health Organization's Hepatitis Elimination Plan.
I agree with this scope.
I think the plan should only focus on hepatitis B.
I think the plan should only focus on hepatitis C.
Structure of Plan
At the in-person meeting on July 28, the planning group agreed to create a plan that was user-friendly, relatively short, and provided guidance for strategic directions rather than specific projects.
I agree with this structure.
At the in-person meeting on July 28, the planning group identified the following focus areas for Hepatitis Elimination in Hawaii. Please select your top 4 priority areas for the plan.
