Hepatitis C (HCV) is the most common blood-borne infection in the United States, with at least 3.5 million people living with it. Of this group, about 25% are co-infected with HIV and HCV. In recent years there’s been increased attention to HCV as new medications have been developed and cure rates have improved for nearly all people living with the disease. With the fast pace of drug development and the blur with which treatment guidelines change, it can be hard for medical providers and people living with HCV to keep up.

Using information from current research and “Recommendations for the Testing, Managing and Treating of Hepatitis C,” put out by the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) and Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA), Project Informs, Andrew Reynolds, lays out the most up to date data about the sexual transmission of Hepatitis C and what gay men can do to prevent infection.
