Hepatitis C In America: What's That?
Are you one of millions of people dealing with hepatitis C? Whether you're waiting to start treatment, currently on treatment, or have been cured, we want to hear from you.
A hepatitis C diagnosis can be challenging, but to learn more about the challenges of hep C, we're conducting our annual survey. By taking our survey, you can bring awareness to the realities of life with hepatitis C.
What’s the survey about?
The survey covers “basics” like diagnosis and treatment experiences, but also dives into the nitty-gritty, like the emotional impact and the day-to-day challenges of managing hepatitis C. We hope to learn more all things endometriosis, including complementary and alternative treatments, diet & nutrition, symptoms, and quality of life!
Why should I take the survey?
Each person who takes the survey contributes to a better understanding of hep C awareness and knowledge, and can help others who are dealing with hep C to feel less alone. Sharing your experiences through the survey can reveal the similarities, and differences, between each person’s journey with hep C, and can bring greater awareness to this condition that affects millions of Americans.
What Will the Survey Ask Me?
The survey will ask about diagnosis, symptoms, symptom management, quality of life and relationships, healthcare professional engagement, and treatment awareness and experience. We do not require your name, address, or other personal information.
Please note that you do not have to take the survey all at once. Feel free to bookmark the survey in your Internet browser and return when you are able. You will resume where you left off.
How Do We Use the In America Survey Data?
Survey responses help us and our partners better understand the Hepatitis C community. All survey responses are kept confidential, reported only in total (your specific responses will not be reported individually), and will become property of Health Union, LLC.
What happens after I take the survey?
After the survey closes each year, the Editorial Team at HepatitisC.net takes your responses and creates an infographic to share the community's experiences, and highlight important findings from the survey.
But that’s not all – throughout the year, we publish articles and videos based on learnings from the survey, like this one about how hepatitis C affects the skin. We hope that this survey-driven content contributes to the information available to those affected by hep C, and helps them connect with those who have walked the same path.
One voice may seem like it won’t make a difference, but each voice can change how others perceive hepatitis C, and bring comfort to someone coping with a diagnosis.
