Rates are highest in the United States among adults, particularly males aged 25–44 years (CDC, 2016). Hepatitis C affects nearly 3.2 million people in the United States, and about 150 million people are chronically infected worldwide. Hepatitis C is the leading cause of liver failure and end stage liver disease. (ALF, 2016). Chronic HCV infection is also the leading indication for liver transplants in the United States (CDC, 2016). It is a curable disease and thus need to screen and treat early is emphasized.
