Know Hepatitis – new CDC website – February 2010

Posted on March 23, 2010. Filed under: Infectious Diseases | Tags: , , , , |

“In the report Hepatitis and Liver Cancer: A National Strategy for Prevention and Control of Hepatitis B and C , the IOM warned that lack of knowledge and awareness about hepatitis B and C can contribute to continued transmission, missed opportunities for early diagnosis and medical care, and poor health outcomes in infected people. This February, in response to the IOM’s recommendation to improve knowledge and awareness through educational programs, the CDC launched Know Hepatitis.org. This website targets community-based health care providers and social service providers on the front lines of hepatitis prevention and provides basic information about the problem of chronic viral hepatitis.”
