  • Hepatitis is  inflammation of the liver and the disease includes a group of viral infections..
  • The most common types are hepatitis A, hepatitis B and hepatitis C.
  • The Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infects and can severely damage the liver. It is the most common chronic blood borne disease in the United States; approximately 4-6 million persons are infected.
  • San Francisco has the highest liver cancer rate in the nation, most of which is attributed to high rates of hepatitis B and hepatitis C virus infections.
  • In 2009, Mayor Gavin Newsom appointed a diverse group of individuals to form the San Francisco Hepatitis C Task Force and to develop recommendations about how to address hepatitis C in the city. Since 2010 the Task Force has been meeting monthly.
