National Hepatitis Awareness Month: May

for Health Care Providers

National Hepatitis Awareness Month

Campaign Description

Please join us in raising awareness about hepatitis throughout the month of May. VA is the largest provider of hepatitis C care in the United States. In 2016 alone, we treated 38,358 patients with hepatitis C, and more than 80,000 since the new medications for hepatitis C treatment became available. The availability of new and improved hepatitis C antiviral drug treatments have the potential to cure hepatitis C with a single course of treatment lasting on average about 12 weeks. Over 90% of Veterans treated with the most recent all-oral hepatitis C therapies have achieved a cure.

Learn the facts about hepatitis from the resources below.

Are you a Veteran interested in knowing for sure that you're free of hepatitis C? Get information about VA testing and treatment.
