What is Hep C?

Hepatitis C is a virus that can infect the liver. For Hep C to be transmitted there must be blood to blood contact with someone who has the virus. If you get Hep C it can result in inflammation and significant damage to the liver, which stops it from working properly. If left untreated it can lead to serious liver damage that can be fatal. This is why it is so important that you find out if you are at risk and how to get tested and treated.
