About the cover:
 
Hepatitis C has long been referred to by the HCV community as “The Dragon.”In Chinese medicine, the liver is represented by a dragon.Appropriately, dragons in folklore can sleep for a long timeand awaken with a vengeance. They are unrelenting beasts that arenotoriously difficult to kill, but with persistence and strength theycan be conquered!

Thetraining was presented by the Harm Reduction Coalition of NewYork City and hosted by the Atlanta Harm Reduction Center.Training participants and others touched by hepatitis C wanted toaddress the impact of the growing hepatitis C epidemic. As a result,in 2003, the Hepatitis C Working Group of Georgia was formed.
