The Veterans' Corner
Our website page for those who’ve served our country and have contracted the Hepatitis C Virus.
A National Institute of Health Study indicates that in Military-related exposures, the prevalence of hepatitis C in these subjects exceeds the estimate from the general US population by more than 2-fold, likely reflecting more exposure to traditional risk factors among these veterans.
In simple language United States Veterans are at least twice as likely to have contracted the Hepatitis C virus than those of us in the average population.
The Veteran's corner is a webpage devoted exclusively to helping the military veteran to
1) identify the infection,
2) accept the diagnosis,
3) get treatment for Hepatitis C infection.
Taking action could save your life!
New treatment shows promise for difficult Hepatitis C infection.
