Why

  • The fastest rising cause of cancer death is from liver cancer, primarily caused by untreated chronic hepatitis B & C. 
  • Understanding the need for long term management of hepatitis B and C is essential to reduce rapidly increasing rates of cirrhosis and liver cancer.  
  • Hep C treatments are curative, effective, taken for short duration and have few unwanted effects. Hep B treatments reduce the risk of liver cancer.
