Hepatitis C Prevention

"• Infection control precautions in health care and community settings can prevent transmission of viral hepatitis as well as many other diseases.
"• Safe injection practices can protect against HBV and HCV transmission.
"• Safer sex practices, including minimizing the number of partners and using barrier protective measures (condoms), protect against HBV and possibly against HCV transmission.
"• Harm reduction practices for injecting drug users prevent HAV, HBV and HCV transmission."
