An Infectious Disease
Hepatitis C is an infectious disease that is spread from person to person through contaminated blood. Up to 20 to 30 percent of people infected with HCV develop a chronic infection that can lead to cirrhosis and even liver cancer. While there is no vaccine for Hepatitis C, early detection and proper treatment can help limit damage to the liver.
Knowledge for Prevention
Understanding the modes of transmission is crucial in preventing the spread of Hepatitis C. The virus is most commonly transmitted through direct contact with infected blood. This can occur through sharing needles or other equipment used for injecting drugs, as the virus can survive in blood outside the body for a significant period.
Hepatitis C is often called a “silent” infection because many individuals do not experience noticeable symptoms in the early stages. However, as the infection progresses, symptoms may manifest. These can include:
