Hepatitis C is a liver disease that affects around 150 million people worldwide. Often referred to as a silent disease, as in most cases it does not result in any symptoms, hepatitis C is most commonly transmitted through contact with an infected person’s blood. The hepatitis C virus can cause serious damage to the liver and, if left untreated, can result in scarring of the liver, liver disease or even death.

Launched in December 2012, offers those living with hepatitis C the opportunity to share their real-life experiences and tips with each other.
