U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs

 The cure rate: over 90 percent.

That outcome is from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and its work in successfully treating Hepatitis C for 80,000+ veterans from 2014-2017. Learn more about this remarkable achievement in this VA blog that was reblogged by AIDS.GOV as part of Hepatitis Awareness Month

  • 75 percent of VA patients born between 1945-1965 have been tested for Hepatitis C, a rate much higher than found elsewhere.
  • The VA has treated more people for Hepatitis C than any other U.S. health care system. 
  • Each more, 2,000 more veterans are being treated for Hepatitis C.
