Hepatitis C Testing: Infographic

The first graphic shows that baby boomers born from 1945 through 1965 should ask to be tested for hepatitis C. Doctors, nurses and other healthcare providers should test patients with a screening blood test, called an antibody test, which shows if a person has ever been infected with the hepatitis C virus.
The second graphic shows what to do if the test is positive or negative. If the test is negative, the person does not have the hepatitis C virus infection – meaning no further action is needed.
The third graphic shows what a person needs to do if he or she tests positive from the initial blood test. The person will need a follow up RNA test for hepatitis C virus to determine if he or she is still infected. If this test is negative, the person does not currently have the hepatitis C virus. No further action is needed. If the test is positive, the person does have hepatitis C and will need to be referred for further evaluation and connected to medical care.

Hepatitis C causes serious liver disease, even liver cancer. Blood tests are needed to tell if you have hepatitis C. A screening blood test, called an antibody test, shows if a person has ever been infected with the hepatitis C virus. If the antibody test is positive, a follow-up RNA blood test is needed to see if a person is still infected with the hepatitis C virus.

Anyone can get hepatitis C, but adults born from 1945 through 1965 are 5 times more likely to have hepatitis C. CDC recommends that everyone in the U.S. born from 1945 through 1965 be tested for hepatitis C in order to increase the proportion of those who know they are infected and linked to care. CDC also recommends that other populations at increased risk for hepatitis C get tested.
