Hepatitis B and C are blood borne viruses that affect the liver. Around one in 52 Australians (or ~460,000 people) is living with hepatitis B or C. They are preventable and treatable. One in three are undiagnosed!

Both hep B and C are transmitted blood-to-blood. Hepatitis B is also transmitted sexually, as is hepatitis C in certain circumstances. To prevent infection get vaccinated for hep B and avoid unsterile injecting and body art, unsafe sex, imprisonment, medical procedures and tattooing in developing countries, and sharing personal effects like tweezers, clippers, toothbrushes and razorblades.
