Abstract

Hepatitis C prevalence and incidence are on the rise, both nationally and in Vermont. This project aims to assess the feasibility and potential benefit of implementing routine prenatal Hepatitis C screening, as opposed to screening only patients who fall within the high exposure risk category. Routine prenatal screening is a simple and cost effective means of increasing the early detection and treatment of Hepatitis C.
