Working with People with Hep C in the Age of a Cure
Globally, an estimated 71 million people have chronic hepatitis C infection.
Chinese medicine has a tremendous amount to offer to people who have been diagnosed with hepatitis C, even once the virus has been cleared (cured) through antiviral treatment. Currently, antiviral medicines can cure more than 95% of persons with hepatitis C infection, although with the caveat that many still do not have access due to lack of care or cost of treatment. Yet, a significant number of those who are currently infected with hepatitis C or have cleared the virus have developed or will develop cirrhosis or liver cancer. About 399,000 people dying each year of late stage liver disease or liver cancer.
