      Liver disease drive not enough

      The virus can be passed by sharing needles
      A �2m awareness campaign to tackle a liver disease which affects 500,000 people in the UK is too little too late, say experts.
      The sum for hepatitis C is pittance compared to the �50m pledged to diseases such as HIV, say charities.

      Even if it helps find the 80% of people who do not yet know they have the virus, there is not enough investment in services to treat them, they warn.
