    Hepatitis C

    My partner picked up Hepatitis C from using drugs intravenously. How can I protect myself and others?

    As you know Hepatitis C is a liver disease, the inflammation is extremely painful and serious. We can't live without our liver. Our liver gets rid of dangerous substances in our blood and fights infection. Our liver helps us to digest our food, stores essential vitamins, nutrients and energy.

    Never share drug needles and always remember to wear gloves when touching someone else's blood. Always wear a condom during sex. Never borrow or use someone's toothbrush, razor or any other item that could have someone else's blood on it. When getting tattoos or piercings on the body you always need to make sure the tools that are being used are sterile. Never donate blood or blood products if you have hepatitis C.
