HIV versus Hepatitis C

While I am only a college student who probably isn't quite aware of the facts,
Brett Lindenbach's comment on why Hepatitis C receives so little publicity versus
the amount received by HIV confuses me.  He says that approximately 1,000,000
people have the disease, but I have heard figures of HIV infection of 1 in 25
to even 1 in 10 (amoung my age of people).  Could someone a bit more knowledge-
able on the subject please clear this up for me?  Thanks.
