can i still work abroad even if i have hepatitis c?
I am from the Philippines. Last 2011 I had a screening in hepatitis c, both of the results were weakly reactive. I just would like to ask if I still have the chance to work abroad or do you know any country that allows worker even if they have hepatitis c?

Thanks...

I've never been asked about having hep C when preparing to travel.
Restrictions vary country to country. Check out the visa requirements of the particular country you're interested in.
Truthfully, I never even thought to mention my hep C to officials. Why bring something up, unless they ask.

If you have had an Antibodies test with a "weak reactive" you may not even have HCV, as there would be a good chance it was a "false positive "
Hopefully your doctor has followed up with an HCV/RNA by PCR blood teat or the RIBA(recombinant Immunoblot assay) to confirm..
Best ..
