The focus of the Hepatitis C Association is to educate the public, both patients and medical providers, about hepatitis C virus.
We offer factual information through educational programs and support materials.
We promote awareness of hepatitis C on our website and through our programs, by educating people about the risk factors and the necessity of protecting our livers with treatment of the virus if needed, and/or practicing healthy behaviors through lifestyle changes.
We strive to bring the importance of organ donation to the forefront of the public's mind.
We offer emotional support to patients living with this insidious disease by making information available on-line, in our brochures, and on a toll-free support line.
We strive to minimize the social and personal impact of hepatitis C on the patient.
We maintain an outreach to uniquely-at-risk groups, such as African Americans and Hispanics. We train leaders who will in turn, educate their communities.
The Hepatitis C Association, Inc., promises to do its best to help patients in every way possible.
