Mission Statement 

"Siren To Wail" Inc., a national non-profit organization formed on August 10,2000 whose mission is to raise awareness, education, and prevention of the Hepatitis C virus (HCV) with initial focus in Louisiana to the public and the medical profession. To assist people affected by the disease offer hepatitis C education and referral services for counseling, free/low cost testing, screening and medical referral services for individuals, public health and employer groups. One or more of every fifty people in the United States are infected with the hepatitis C virus. Often called "The Silent Epidemic", the disease can linger without symptoms for decades while causing serious liver damage. Risk factors that indicate the need for prompt screening include:

  • Blood transfusion or solid organ transplant before 1992

  • Treatments with blood clotting products before 1987

  • Long-term kidney dialysis

  • Shared drug needles; drug straws; body piercing needles; tattoo needles and inks

  • Accidental needlesticks; blood contact with the eyes, nose, mouth or broken skin

  • Unprotected sex with multiple partners

  • Elevated liver blood tests
Siren To Wail, Inc.
is dedicated to raising public awareness, education and prevention of the Hepatitis C Virus
