Hepatitis C

Hepatitis C is a liver disease that results from infection with the hepatitis C virus. It’s usually spread when the blood from an infected person enters the body of someone who is not infected, most commonly through sharing drug needles. Before 1992 and the advent of widespread screening, hepatitis C was also transmitted through blood transfusions and organ transplants.

The disease can range in severity and can either be “chronic” or “acute.” Acute hepatitis C is a short-term illness that occurs during the first six months of infection. For most people, acute hepatitis C later becomes a chronic infection, which is a serious life-long illness.
