The Hepatitis C Support Project / HCV Advocate produces various educational materials. We no longer ship these materials for distribution. When we did provide these materials, the majority of the costs were shipping costs. Our hope is that by providing the pdf’s to the community-at-large, local non-profits will be able to print them and avoid the high cost of shipping.
The materials can be printed on black and white/color printers or can be sent to a local commercial printer. We encourage people and organizations to support their local print shops.
Listed below are the educational pieces in PDF format that can be downloaded and printed.
