Worldwide, an estimated 290 million people are living with viral hepatitis, unaware that they are infected.
Hepatitis doesn't have many symptoms, so testing is very important, and, it’s easy! Just a blood test, that's offered as part of our preventative care screenings. Testing is recommended for anyone who:
- Was born between 1945 and 1965
- Has ever injected drugs, including any who injected once or many years ago
- Has certain medical conditions, like HIV
- Was a recipient of transfusions or organ transplants prior to July 1992
If you fall into any of the categories above, make a commitment to get a screening in July.
