Awareness

Hepatitis C is the most common, chronic, blood- borne viral infection in the United States.

  • An estimated 5 million people in the U.S. (1 in 50) have been infected with the hepatitis C virus.

The hepatitis C epidemic is global.

  • At least 3% of the world's population (over 170 million persons) are infected with the hepatitis C virus.

Most people with hepatitis C do not know they have it.

  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that 2/3 of infected Americans are unaware of their status.
CAP-Hepatitis C is committed to the goal that everyone who has hepatitis C is properly diagnosed.
