Hepatitis C epidemiology

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

Hepatitis C virus infection occurs in all parts of the world. Infection is generally due to percutaneous exposures, though sexual and perinatal transmission may occur. While further study is needed to elucidate the biology of HCV transmission and develop vaccines for prevention, new HCV infections can be reduced by economic development and education regarding blood-borne infections.
