Remember that May was Hepatitis Awareness Month

and SAMHSA is joining CDC and others in urging two groups of people to get tested for hepatitis C (HCV):

  1. Those born between 1945 and 1965 (rates of infection in this group are five times higher than in other adults in the U.S. population);
  2. Those who have engaged in high-risk behaviors, such as injection drug use.
