Greetings Wise Women!!

August 2003

Welcome to the second issue of Wise Words for 2003! In this issue we focus on hepatitis C. Many women living with HIV also live with hepatitis C. This can present many challenges such as side effects and when to start treatment for hepatitis C or HIV. However, with accurate information, a good relationship with your provider and a positive outlook, you can work through these challenges.

If you are living with hepatitis C and HIV, there are a lot of factors to consider when making decisions about therapy. As you make these decisions, remember to take your time and ask as many questions as you can. It's also important to have a strong support system, like family, friends, a case manager or your pastor.

This issue provides information on HCV treatment and care, a guide to help you with your treatment decisions, and some resources for more information on hepatitis C.

As always, if you have comments, suggestions or questions, please contact me at wise@projectinform.org. Peace and blessings.

Shalini Eddens
Program Manager, Project Wise
