Hepatitis C

Hepatitis C is a viral infection caused by the Hepatitis C Virus (HCV), and it is a significant global health concern. This virus primarily targets the liver, where it can cause a range of liver diseases, from acute infections to chronic conditions with severe consequences. Hepatitis C is mainly transmitted through contact with infected blood.

One of the challenges of Hepatitis C is that it often progresses silently. Many individuals do not experience noticeable symptoms during the acute phase.

Therefore accurate diagnosis is essential, and this is typically achieved through blood tests that detect antibodies to the virus. Confirmatory tests measure the viral load and genotype of the virus. These tests help determine the stage of infection and guide treatment decisions.

Understanding the complexities of Hepatitis C is crucial for early detection, effective treatment, and comprehensive prevention efforts, ultimately working towards reducing the global burden of this liver disease.
