A quilt features an American flag with a liver overlaid onto it, a stitched red cross, stars, a chain of people, and text that reads: "Over 3 million Americans are living with hepatitis C - Hepatitis C Awareness Month 2020."

Spotlight: Hepatitis C Awareness Month

May is Hepatitis Awareness Month! While awareness isn't limited to May, during this month, we want to highlight the impact of hepatitis C, recent developments in treatment, and how the hep C population is changing.

In addition, this month, we will focus on sharing personal stories, tackling popular myths and misconceptions, and sharing resources to make live more manageable with hepatitis C. This month is about all of us: People just diagnosed, people starting or looking for treatment, and people cured of hepatitis C.
