Protecting Yourself Against Hepatitis A, B, and C

 

Hepatitis A, B, and C, collectively referred to as viral hepatitis, are serious public health problems, not just in the United States, but worldwide. In fact, about one in twelve people worldwide live with chronic viral hepatitis (World Health Organization [WHO], 2010). Viral hepatitis does not usually produce symptoms until damage to the liver causes severe liver impairment. This means that the typical person with viral hepatitis does not appear “sick” and oftentimes they do not even know they are infected. It is because of this that viral hepatitis is termed a “silent epidemic.” In this course, you will learn how the Hepatitis A, B, and C viruses spread and what measures you can take to prevent their spread. By knowing this information, you will be in a better position to protect yourself from exposure. Includes Spanish version.
