ABSTRACT
The article reports on the outbreak of hepatitis C cases in the glbt community in Vancouver, British Columbia. It cites a study which linked the increased infection to high-risk sexual behaviour among men who have sex with men. Joss de Wet, a doctor specializing in gay men's health, suggests that if people suspect that they have been exposed to hepatitis C, they would visit a doctor for a blood test that measures antibodies to check if virus is present.
