Getting Ready for Hepatitis C Treatment

New treatments mean:

  • fewer side-effects
  • shorter treatment, and
  • cure rates of about 95% for those who complete treatment.

Speak with your provider to get more information. This booklet is still available, but pages about hard side-effects may no longer be relevant.

If you have to travel or have other challenging life circumstances, some pages can be a good place to keep track of questions and other information about treatment. Click to view or download.
