World Hepatitis Day

We have shared posters from the WHO, CDC  and the World Health Alliance recognizing this day. Let's finally find a cure for all forms of hepatitis!















According to the CDC
World Hepatitis Day, recognized on July 28, was established by the World Health Organization (WHO) to raise awareness and promote understanding of viral hepatitis, the seventh leading cause of death worldwide. Together, hepatitis B and hepatitis C are responsible for most of the 1.4 million annual deaths attributed to viral hepatitis. In April 2016, the 69th World Health Assembly adopted a Global Viral Hepatitis Strategy that aims to eliminate hepatitis B and hepatitis C as public health threats by 2030. The strategy includes prevention and treatment targets that, when met, will save millions of lives.
