World Hepatitis Day
It is estimated that more than 500 million people worldwide are living with either chronic hepatitis B or C. Together, hepatitis B and C represent one of the biggest threats to global health, killing approximately 1 million people a year. Yet, awareness on hepatitis B or C is comparatively low, a situation made worse by the fact that a large proportion of those infected with Hepatitis B or C do not know that they carry the virus.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has designated Viral Hepatitis as an important health issue that requires worldwide attention and assigned 28 July as World Hepatitis Day. An officially sanctioned World Hepatitis Day is a powerful way to raise awareness of viral hepatitis. and drives forward actions to improve prevention, diagnosis and treatment of hepatitis B and C.
