High risk of hepatitis C for Vancouver’s street youth
A new study says Vancouver street youth face an alarmingly high risk of hepatitis C infection.
The BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS tracked youth aged 14 to 26 over the course of six years.
Of the more than 500 tested, 100 people had the disease.
Dr. Scott Hadland says it should be a call to action.
