CDC Recommends One-time HCV Testing for Baby Boomers

In August 2012, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention issued final guidance recommending that all people born from 1945 to 1965 be tested once for Hepatitis C virus (HCV). This recommendation was based upon an analysis of the 1999-2008 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), which found that one in 30 baby boomers is infected with Hepatitis C. Baby boomers account for 75% of HCV prevalence in the United States. Many were infected prior to any awareness of HCV, and consequently, any understanding of how HCV is transmitted.
