Hey Tig,

Yes, folk do miss scouring through the "Knowledge" section more, and the newest link you posted below, "Hep C Hope", is another good source of info.

I found the "Hep C Hope" site interesting (just in itself), being that it links you back to Gilead's website. Similar to the well done TV commercials Gilead now has out there, the Hep C Hope website is also well done. Limited medical info, but very good, basic up-to-date info, presented in a positive manner. All one really needs to know (to start with). Good portrayal of the disease in a nutshell. Good they encourage people to get tested and provide a means on the "how to" get tested, find a doc, pay for treatment, etc. I find you really do have to spend some time opening up and reading ALL the pages within the site to get the full value. Good they have real people videos. Interesting when you finally get to the clicking on the "further treatment info", it actually takes you right out of the website to go to Gilead's own main website to read about Harvoni and Epclusa. A polite distance they tried to create between helpful info on one site and more into it's marketing on the other. So, of course other treatment regimes that do not belong to Gilead are not discussed, save for some minor mention of riba. Funny again, no mention of their VOX!

Cudo's tho to Gilead for the info and help they are trying to provide to people. I thought is was a well done site with value. smile C.
