May is Hepatitis Awareness Month. Hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C are three types of viral hepatitis. While each can produce similar symptoms, each hepatitis virus affects the liver differently, has different routes of transmission, and has different populations that are commonly affected.
The opioid crisis and associated injection drug use have fueled a dramatic increase in hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections among people who inject drugs (PWID). Since 2012, there have been more deaths due to hepatitis C than all 60 of the other reportable infectious diseases combined, including HIV, pneumococcal disease, and tuberculosis (Ly, et al., 2016).
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has developed a 5 minute Hepatitis Risk Assessment tool to help people find out if they should get tested or vaccinated for viral hepatitis. The assessment will provide personalized testing and vaccination recommendations for hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and/or hepatitis C.
