Hepatitis is inflammation of the liver. It can be brought on by alcohol, drugs, viruses and other toxins. Viral hepatitis refers to hepatitis resulting from infection of the liver by the hepatitis A, B, C, D or E viruses - hepatitis A, B and C being the most common. These viruses all produce similar symptoms, but differ in modes of transmission and long-term effects on health.
Hepatitis B is spread through blood, sexual fluids and from mother to child during birth. If left unmanaged, it can lead to cirrhosis and liver cancer.
An estimated 257 million people are living with chronic hepatitis B worldwide - 240,000 of them in Australia.
Hepatitis C is transmitted via blood-to-bloodstream contact. Untreated, hepatitis C can lead to cirrhosis and serious liver disease. Effective treatments are available.
World-wide, there are an estimated 71 million people living with chronic hepatitis C - 170,000 of them in Australia.
