Greetings from the HCV and HBV Advocate Websites:

We have posted many important articles and materials this week including an updated HCV Drug Pipeline, an updated and redesigned Easy C –A Guide to HIV and Hep C Coinfection, and we have updated and added a variety of hepatitis B and C fact sheets.    

Up for a challenge?  We have put together an HBV crossword to test your knowledge about hepatitis B.  It’s on the HBV Advocate Website where we have recently updated many of the fact sheets and other important information. Check out the other puzzles and interactive quizzes on our patient education pages: HBV Patient Education; HCV Patient Education.

On another note, Betty Vega is working on a blog—  Betty’s blog is all about people telling their personal stories and her goal is to post 500 stories by mid-May in time for World Hepatitis Day.   Tell your story—it can help many people who may be experiencing the same issues, and your story will help to give our community a voice.
