Blood-to-Blood

Increasingly, people in Canada who have hepatitis C are also living with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). This is partly because both viruses can be transmitted by blood-to-blood contact. Sharing materials contaminated with blood (including equipment for injection drug use, piercing, tattooing or medical procedures) puts a person at risk for both viruses. Having HIV can also make a person more susceptible to getting hepatitis C.
