By 

Abstract

Approximately 3.5 million Americans are living with chronic Hepatitis C, a serious and potentially deadly liver disease caused by infection with the Hepatitis C virus. Of those living with Hepatitis C, 3 in 4 are people born from 1945 to 1965, or baby boomers. Recognizing this significant disease burden, the Department of Health and Human Services\u2019 national Action Plan for Viral Hepatitis called for a national Hepatitis C education campaign and designated Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to lead the effort. Know More Hepatitis is a national multi-media campaign targeting health care professionals and baby boomers with the goal of increasing testing for Hepatitis C.factsheet-kmhcampaign.pd
