Hep C 101

Our team of young leaders first published a Hep C resource in 2013. With support from Gilead Sciences and the Public Health Agency of Canada, we updated the booklet with youth living with Hep C in 2018, to include updated information that Hep C is curable. This fun pamphlet that covers the basics of Hep C transmission, testing, and treatment, and features YouthCO's iconic robots. If you would like to get print copies, get in touch with us at info@youthco.org or by phone!

You’re welcome to share and download this resource as much as you'd like. Please get in touch with us if you have more questions about anything in the booklet at peered@youthco.org.

YouthCO's office is located on the unceded traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh people. Our programs take place on unceded, ancestral, and traditional territories of many Indigenous nations across what is now called BC.

YouthCO believes that all youth have the right to accessible and affirming information about our health. We also know each of us has a unique relationship to our bodies, sex, sexuality, substance use, and harm reduction. For many of us, the words other people use for our bodies and their functions are not the words we use for ourselves. Throughout our website, YouthCO uses words for bodies and sex that we know will not reflect the full diversity of our communities. We have tried to, where possible, be as expansive with our language as we know how to while being as specific as possible. As youth leading the HIV movement, we too are learning about the best words for our experiences and do not do this perfectly. We invite any feedback about the language used on our website to help us move forward in the best ways for all youth in our communities!
