The five viruses are hepatitis A (VHA), hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), hepatitis D (VHD) and viral hepatitis E (VHE). These viruses continue to evolve and even expected at least there are still three more viruses that can cause hepatitis.

About 350 million live with the virus settles in the body and potentially infect others. Approximately 78% of people with hepatitis befall the people of Asia and islands in the Pacific region.

In some cases also found to be flu-like symptoms and jaundice which marked the skin and eyes look yellow. However, symptoms of hepatitis are not always apparent, especially in most cases happen to children.
The virus can move from one patient to healthy people. If a person's immune system is weakened, the virus will infect a healthy person's body. Although actually, the virus can be cleaned by human antibodies themselves if their immune system either. 

Hepatitis A 

Hepatitis A virus commonly found in feces of patients. Viruses can live on water or ice cubes. The way the spread of this virus is due to drinking contaminated water VHA. It could also be due to eating foods that are not cooked properly so the virus remains alive on the food or because the person preparing the food are not used to wash hands properly in advance, but may be at hand there is the virus of hepatitis A. Not washing hands after using the toilet also causes the virus exist in human feces is finally moving.

Hepatitis C 

Patients hepatitis C is usually transmitted in a way that is almost the same as the transmission of hepatitis B, but in most people is because the needles. 

Hepatitis handle

However, sometimes because they do not show obvious symptoms, most people do not realize that his body had already dwelt viral hepatitis and liver has become damaged. 

Vaccinations can be given to someone to get antibodies from viral hepatitis A (VHA) and hepatitis B virus (HBV). However, for hepatitis C there is no vaccination to prevent it. While a person has not indicated this virus but the vaccine can prevent liver damage due to viral hepatitis symptoms may not begin until decades later. Vaccine in particular needs to be given to children because of their weaker immune to clear hepatitis virus than adults. 

If the condition of the liver was severely damaged, the choice is to perform liver transplants. However, it will be difficult because the donor heart that there are fewer than a waiting list of patients who need liver.
