HepCAP is Philadelphia's Hepatitis C Coalition
It is estimated that more than 3.5 million people in the United States are infected with hepatitis C. Close to 50,000 of these people live in the City of Philadelphia.
A study by the Philadelphia Department of Public Health showed that very few people are tested and even fewer are able to access treatment or be cured.
