"Observing Liver Cancer Awareness Month"

Each year 25,000 men and 10,000 women are diagnosed with liver cancer in the US. Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC), the most common type of liver cancer, is caused by Hepatitis C virus. Hepatitis C cases have increased 5-fold since 2010 and adult vaccination rates are low. Encouraging regular testing, vaccination, and harm reduction techniques for hepatitis play a role in reducing the risk of liver cancer.

The National Association of County & City Health Officials (NACCHO) created an infographic on the prevention and elimination of Hepatitis. This resource outlines:

  • Hepatitis trends in the U.S
  • Opportunities
  • And barriers related to the prevention and elimination of viral hepatitis
You can read the infographic - and find more resources to support hepatitis prevention efforts - through the NPIN database. You can also follow our Twitter and Facebook for more information as we continue to observe National Liver Cancer Awareness Month.
