Community Response and Janssen have joined forces to launch ‘Treat It, Beat It’, a campaign to raise awareness of hepatitis C and highlight the need for the HSE’s National Hepatitis C Strategy to be resourced as a matter of urgency.  

They have developed a facility on the Community Response website for people to petition their local TDs urging them to ensure that resourcing of the National Hepatitis C Strategy is a priority in Budget 2015.

An estimated 20,000 to 50,000 people are infected with hepatitis C in Ireland, with many of those infected undiagnosed and untreated 

Hepatitis C is an infectious disease, often with no symptoms, and can lead to severe liver conditions. Of those who develop chronic hepatitis C, an estimated 30% will develop cirrhosis; others will develop liver cancer, some of whom may require liver transplantation. Chronic hepatitis C is the most common reason for liver transplants in Europe and poses a significant public health burden. Over 70% of people affected by Hepatitis C in Ireland are IVDUs

To support the ‘Treat It, Beat It’ campaign and petition your local public representative visit - it takes less than a minute...
