Campaigning in the media

It is important that hepatitis C is portrayed in the media in an accurate and informative way, that the public understand the way it can affect a patient’s life and where they can turn to for help and support.

We are always on the look-out for inaccurate or misleading articles about hepatitis C in the press.

We also try to ensure that the media accurately portrays the risk factors for hepatitis C and how to prevent infection. Common misconceptions such as hepatitis C being a common sexually transmitted disease appear far too regularly and we would like your help in tackling this. If you spot any inaccuracies like this please let us know by emailing

The Hepatitis C Trust is often looking for patients to share their experiences of hepatitis C for use in the media. If this is something you are interested in helping with please see Share Your Story.
