COPE’s mission is to bridge the gaps in chronic healthcare management for people not getting the care they need.
COPE’s vision is to Improve access to quality care for under-served populations by providing education and support; reducing the fear, stigma, and discrimination associated with viral hepatitis and other chronic conditions. Also, to create a Center of Excellence in patient education in New York City that can be replicated worldwide.
This is accomplished through:
- Teaching the public and hepatitis patients how to prevent, diagnose, and treat viral hepatitis;
Promoting liver wellness and healthful lifestyles;
Serving as advocates for hepatitis patients and the related medical community worldwide;
Supporting research into the prevention, treatment, and cures for viral hepatitis;
Educating the general public about the realities of mental health and its affect on physical health and well-being.
