3. Age of Infection - Viral Hepatitis

These are also diseases that occur at all ages, and I put this cartoon up here with the little pluses and the different ages, to show that yes there are some differences between the different viruses, but this is one of those diseases that is not just a childhood disease or just an adult disease; it is occurring everywhere, and this causes some of the complexity in terms of prevention, but it raises a number of opportunities. Again, they are unfortunately diseases of all ages.
