About the Know More Hepatitis Campaign
An estimated 2.4 million Americans are living with hepatitis C, yet many do not know they are infected. In April 2020, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued recommendations calling for all adults, age 18 years and older, to get tested for hepatitis C.
Know More Hepatitis, a national, theory-driven multi-media education campaign, is designed to help implement this recommendation by encouraging all adults to get tested for hepatitis C. The goal of the campaign is to ultimately reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with hepatitis C by increasing testing so those who are infected can get linked to life-saving care and treatment. Treatment is available that can cure hepatitis C for most people.
