CDC hepc about

Did you know that Hepatitis C affects an estimated 3.2 million Americans, yet as many as 50% don’t know they are infected?  Hepatitis C is a serious liver disease that causes health problems, including liver damage, cirrhosis, and even liver cancer.  The good news is that early detection and treatment can save lives.

People born from 1945 to 1965 are five times more likely to have Hepatitis C. That’s why the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) launched the Know More Hepatitis campaign to encourage anyone born during these years get tested for Hepatitis C.  Two public service announcements (in varying lengths) are available to help spread the word about this often misunderstood disease:

  • • “Hepatitis C: A Hidden Disease” shows that even if you have a healthy life and have no symptoms, you could have Hepatitis C.  Available in 30 and 60 seconds.

  • • “Get the Facts about Hepatitis C” explains what the disease is, who is affected and how testing and early detection can save lives. Available in 30 seconds.

  • We hope you find our public service announcements compelling and will consider airing them.  Should you need additional materials, please contact S. Tom Derreaux, VP - Campaign Management & Media Tracking, Plowshare Group, at 203-425-3949 or tom@plowsharegroup.com.  For more information on the Know More Hepatitis campaign, please visit www.cdc.gov/KnowMoreHepatitis.
