Hepatitis C: Living with hepatitis C

Work

There are no unified European regulations on hepatitis C and the workplace.

People with chronic hepatitis C can generally work freely in all professions and there is no need to change jobs.

There are restrictions in professions with a high risk of infection or injury (e.g. abattoir workers) and in certain medical fields (e.g. surgery).
