Welcome

Get Tested. Get Treated. Get Cured.

Here are 3 reasons why you should get tested for Hep C:

  1. You could have Hep C even if you feel fine! It can take 30 years for you to develop any symptoms. Untreated, the virus could cause significant damage to your liver, including cancer or cirrhosis.
  2. If you do have Hep C, new treatments have improved dramatically and even have an over 90% cure rate! The sooner you get tested, the quicker you can get treatment!
  3. You are especially at risk for Hep C if you were born between 1945-1965; if you’ve ever used IV drugs; or, if you received a blood transfusion before 1990.

The test is quick, easy, and, thanks to generous funding from Dignity Health Community Grants Program, confidential Hep C testing is now available to you FREE at locations throughout SLO County!

The SLO Hep C Project is dedicated to providing supportive services for county residents living with heptitis C and educating the public and healthcare providers about viral hepatitis.

The San Luis Obispo County Hepatitis C Task Force was established in 1999 in response to the growing number of hepatitis C cases being seen in the community. Service providers such as the San Luis Obispo County AIDS Support Network, County Drug and Alcohol Program, the Economic Opportunity Commission, the Community Health Centers of the Central Coast, the Veteran's Administration, County Public Health, the North County Connection and others, came together to pro-actively find resources and strategies to fight the epidemic of Hep C within the county. The SLO Hep C Project was established in 2000 with a grant from the California Endowment.
