In this episode, Norah Terrault, MD, MPH, and a patient who has been cured of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection discuss the importance of universal HCV testing for all adults, as well as the ease of curative therapies and the benefits of living with improved liver function post cure.

This insightful discussion underscores how perceptions around HCV transmission risks and lack of symptoms serve as barriers to adequate screening and diagnosis, preventing curative treatment for many people with undiagnosed disease. The conversation also highlights the critical role of patient education and self-advocacy related to HCV infection, including what patients need to know and expect following cure.
