HEP C CAN BE CURED
If you do have Hep C, it can be cured. Recent scientific advances have made today’s treatments for Hep C shorter and more effective, with cure rates of around 95% and an average length of treatment of 12 weeks. These advances have made a real difference—it’s estimated that in the past few years, more people have been treated and cured of Hep C than in the previous decade.
The goal of Hep C treatment is to be cured. You are considered cured when a lab test done 3 months after you’ve completed treatment does not find any Hep C virus in your blood.
