Hepatitis C (HCV) is the most common blood-borne disease and is the leading cause of liver transplants in the United States. The month of May is designated as Hepatitis Awareness month and is the time of year when medical professionals and advocacy groups dedicate more time, energy and resources to educating the public about the disease and the health risks involved with the disease.
May 19th is recognized as Hepatitis Testing Day. Getting tested for Hepatitis could save your life. There are lifesaving treatments available for chronic hepatitis B and new treatments are available that can cure Hepatitis C but getting tested is the only way to know if you are infected.
As part of Hepatitis Awareness Month, learn how you can help educate family and friends and encourage them to get tested. To learn more about Hepatitis and Hepatitis Awareness Month, view these resources from the CDC.
