The new web and mobile app is free and available on desktop, laptop, mobile, and tablet devices. Interested users can sign-up online, or download the app from the App Store or from Google Play. It is available both in Canada and the US.
The hep C app provides self-care tools for people living with hep C to help them manage their hep C and prepare for treatment. It offers tools to do things like document lab tests, manage daily diet and nutrition, and track feelings and emotions.
App users can also call the Help-4-Hep hotline (877-435-7443) directly from the app and discuss their condition with a counsellor.
The new app aims to support more individuals living with hep C who are waiting for treatment.
Help-4-Hep is a non-profit, peer-to-peer helpline where counsellors work to meet the challenges of hepatitis C head-on. Callers talk one-to-one with a real person, typically someone who’s had hepatitis C touch their own life. The support is free of charge.
Daryl Luster, PHCN‘s President of the Board of Directors, works tirelessly as one of Help-4-Hep’s peer counsellors.
For more information or counselling support call the Help-4-Hep hotline toll free at 877-Help-4-Hep (877-435-7443).
