Hepatitis C is a blood borne virus which damages the liver. In 2015 there were about 230,000 Australians living with Hep C and around 5,400 new infections, with about 90% of these from people sharing injecting equipment.
There is NO vaccination for Hep C, but there are excellent new treatment options available since March 2016.
This booklet aims to increase knowledge and awareness of hepatitis C, allowing drug users to make informed decisions regarding their health. Produced by drug users for drug users in January 2017.
