Viral Hepatitis Updates from CDC
MMWR: Recommendations for the Identification of Chronic Hepatitis C Virus Infection Among Persons Born During 1945–1965
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is an increasing cause of morbidity and mortality in the U.S. CDC estimates that persons born during 1945-1965 account for three fourths of all HCV infections in the country. This report presents CDC recommendations that augment previous recommendations for HCV testing and recommends one-time testing without prior ascertainment of HCV risk for persons born during 1945-1965.

In support of the new recommendations, CDC has the following resources available:
  • Know More Hepatitis campaign website.
  • New Posters promoting the new Hepatitis C testing recommendations are now available for download or ordering online through our publications ordering system.
  • Infographic provides information and data for people who are not tested for hepatitis C vs. people who are tested through a visual graphic.
  • Digital Tools highlighting the new Hepatitis C testing recommendations are now available, including an array of new buttons and badges.
  •  Partner Resources promoting the recommendations, including fact sheets, PowerPoint and letterhead templates.
  • Hepatitis Risk Assessment on-line assessment has been updated to include the new recommendation for those born from 1945 through 1965.
