Hepatitis C Trust launch art on a postcard
31st October 2014

214,000 people live with hepatitis C people in the UK, yet only half of those are diagnosed. 
The Hepatitis C Trust have launched an “art on a postcard” campaign to raise money for the cause. Some high profile artists are involved, including Damien Hirst and Sam Taylor-Johnson, as well as many up and coming artists. 

Gemma Peppe from The Hepatitis C Trust talks about the dangers of undiagnosed Hepatitis C and explains why not having any symptoms can pose a serious risk of liver cirrhosis or cancer. She also explains the money raising efforts and why it's so necessary to increase awareness of undiagnosed Hepatitis.
