About the Know More Hepatitis Campaign

Hepatitis C is a silent epidemic in the United States. More than 3 million Americans are living with the disease and up to 75 percent of people with Hepatitis C do not know that they are infected. Every year, thousands of Americans die from liver cancer or chronic liver disease associated with Hepatitis C. People born from 1945 through 1965, or baby boomers, are five times more likely to be infected with Hepatitis C than other adults.

To decrease the burden of Hepatitis C in the U.S., CDC’s Division of Viral Hepatitis developed a national education campaign called Know More Hepatitis. The campaign is aimed at increasing awareness about Hepatitis C and encouraging people born during 1945-1965 to get tested.
