Unfortunately, people knowing, or thinking, you have hepatitis B and/or hepatitis C, can mean they treat you differently to other people. This can be distressing, and contribute to internal feelings of shame or other unpleasant feelings.  It can also have a real effect on your social experiences, including the services you are provided with, and the quality of those services.  

We aim to give you more information about stigma and discrimination: what it means; when you have to disclose you have hepatitis B and/or C; what your rights are if someone has treated you poorly; and, issues to consider if you work with people who have hepatitis B and/or C.

Find out who you need to talk to if you feel discriminated against and want to make a complaint.
