Description/Abstract

Hepatitis C infection
It is estimated that 0.5–1% of the UK population is infected with hepatitis C virus (HCV) and 170 million people worldwide. The commonest route of infection in the UK is injecting drug use,
although there are still a significant number of people whose infection was contracted from infected blood products prior to the introduction of HCV screening in 1991.
