| Response from Dr. Wohl
Hepatitis C virus (HCV), like HIV, is a virus and is transmitted from person to person. Both can be spread by sex, by sharing needles and from tainted blood products.
For much more info, check out www.cdc.gov and search for HCV. Also, www.natap.org has everything you would want to know (and more) regarding HCV.
