The majority of people infected with hepatitis B or hepatitis C lead normal healthy lives, but some people will develop serious liver disease that will dramatically affect their quality of life. This could mean the loss of gainful employment and the inability to support themselves and their loved ones. This guide is meant for anyone affected by hepatitis B or hepatitis C; it is intended to be a valuable tool in helping people advocate for themselves or others.
Millions of Americans live with chronic hepatitis C virus infection (HCV). This disease is more than a medical diagnosis; it is a social and emotional issue. HCV touches the homes, workplaces and communities of all those within its reach. Each person living with HCV is faced with many decisions, including whom to tell, when to tell and what to tell others. If you disclose your HCV status, be prepared, and do it with your eyes wide open. Disclosure may have a dark side to it.
