Will it kill me?

Hepatitis C is a major cause of liver disease. Approximately 20% of people will progress to serious liver damage called cirrhosis within 20-30 years of infection.

One in five people fight off the infection by themselves, through their own immune system.

In Scotland, treatment is available that can lead to a cure in over 90% of people, depending on their genotype.
