Front Cover
Ashgate, 2011 - Medical - 168 pages
Since the naming of hepatitis C in 1989, knowledge about the disease has grown exponentially. So too, however, has the stigma with which it is linked. Associated with injecting drug use and tainted blood scandals, hepatitis C inspires fear and blame. "Making Disease, Making Citizens" takes a timely look at the disease, those directly affected by it and its social and cultural implications.
