TEN81 now offers Hep B and Hep C testing for MSM

There are often few or no symptoms, but hepatitis can lead to liver damage. It is particularly dangerous for people who are HIV positive (co-infection can result in more rapid progression of both diseases).

The good news is that Hepatitis C can be cured in most people and Hepatitis B is also manageable. Should you test positive for C, we will refer you to a private doctor. If you are positive for B, we can treat you at TEN81 at no cost.

By getting tested, you’ll also help researchers and doctors beat the disease. Your test results will be included (with your approval) in a national research project that aims to understand how common the prevalence of Hepatitis C is among MSM. 

To get tested for hepatitis (for free) at TEN81 in Pretoria call us for an appointment on 012 430 2081.
