We work across the UK to engage, test, and support people who have or may have hepatitis C.
The impact of our work is increasingly recognised as offering huge potential for UK and global health, and has won local, national and international awards.
Since 2019, more than 100,000 people have attended an awareness or education session run by our prison and community teams, and we’ve trained more than 40,000 professionals and volunteers who work with people at risk of hepatitis C.
Over the last 4 years we have tested 97,000 people and supported more than 15,000 patients through treatment.
There is a growing body of evidence suggesting that our approach to patient care works. An early assessment of our community peer programme found higher numbers of people starting, and completing, hepatitis C treatment in hospital teams that included peers. More work is underway to evaluate longer-term impact. Find out more on our Research page.
