About test

Hepatitis C is a liver infection known to be caused by the Hepatitis C virus (HCV). Hepatitis C is a blood-borne virus and can be transmitted by performing activities with an infected person such as unprotected sex, or sharing injection needles, toothbrushes, nail clippers, or razors. For some, Hepatitis C is a short-term illness but for 70%–85% of people of those who become infected, Hepatitis C can develop into a long-term, chronic infection that may induce complications. This kit enables you to test safely from the privacy of your own home. Free telemedicine and treatment (as determined medically appropriate) is available for positives.
