In brief: Contact with blood
One can catch hepatitis c from an infected person by getting the infected person's blood into oneself by activities such as: sharing needles during drug abuse, accidental needle-sticks, being born to a hepc+ mother, sharing razors or toothbrushes, or having sex.
Transmission of hepc virus during sex can happen, but is uncommon.
