Hepatitis Scotland e-Bulletin 2

Welcome to the second edition of our bulletin. This is a regular communication that aims to update you on issues relating to viral hepatitis in Scotland. In addition to regular news, in the future we plan an ongoing series of articles based around prevention, support, treatment, awareness and capacity building issues. We will also seek to highlight the latest research findings in an Interesting News section. This is a re-send of the original version of e-Bulletin 2, now updated with audio versions for some of the stories.

Podcast E Bulletin
A number of the Hepatitis E Bulletin stories are  now available in an audio version via a podcast. These are read by Will, a volunteer for Hepatitis Scotland based in Edinburgh. Will has been living C positive for nearly 30 years and readily volunteers his time to help others affected by Hepatitis C. Please click on the link below the story to access the podcast.
