Hepatitis C, also called “HCV,” is a virus that can hurt your liver. It is spread through infected blood. Most people do not have symptoms from HCV right away, but without treatment, HCV can cause severe liver damage called cirrhosis. There are medications that can cure HCV.

We support a public health approach to hepatitis education, prevention, testing, and treatment in prisons and jails. Injecting drug users (IDUs) are at high risk of hepatitis C (HCV) infection.
