Greetings:

We thought you would like to know that we have uploaded several new files to the HCV and HBV Websites:

.

  • HCSP has updated our most popular brochure –Ask Me About Hepatitis C:

  • Palm Card


  • You can view the palm card and find out how to order these and other brochures here.

  • We have recently updated our Top Ten documents that were viewed on the HCV and HBV Advocate Websites – find out what others are reading regarding viral hepatitis.

  • HBV

    HCV

  • We have also updated many of our Guides and Factsheets:

Don’t forget that there is help as close as a phone call – the 877-HELP-4-HEP line (877-435-7443) is available 9:00am to 7:00pm Eastern Time.  For more information about the services they offer either call or visit their Website at www.help4hep.org  The helpline is run by The Support Partnership:  a group of non-profits working together to help people affected by hepatitis C.
