HCV Elimination Strategic Planning

Hep C Free Allegheny

Project Years: 2019-2020

After Facente Consulting helped to plan and facilitate a two-day summit focused on hepatitis C elimination in Allegheny County (the county surrounding Pittsburgh, PA), the local Community Liver Alliance partnered with the Allegheny County Health Department to develop the first-ever strategic plan for the collective impact initiative known as “Hep C Free Allegheny,” to guide their work over the next three years.

Even before COVID-19 made “Zoom” a household word, Facente Consulting conducted the entire project virtually to save travel costs, video conferencing into a series of planning meetings using Microsoft Teams, OneDrive, and other strategies to work effectively and efficiently from thousands of miles away. We provided guidance and facilitation throughout the process, including a 3-hour meeting with the initiative’s Steering Committee to revise initially drafted mission, vision, values, core strategies, and key initiatives; and dozens of meetings with various working groups to develop hard-hitting strategic priorities for the initiative.
