World Hepatitis Day (WHD) takes places every year on 28 July and brings the world together to raise awareness of the global burden of viral hepatitis and to influence real change.
Viral hepatitis is one of the leading causes of death globally, accounting for 1.34 million deaths per year –as many as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis or malaria. Together, hepatitis B virus and hepatitis C cause 80% of liver cancer in the world.
DID YOU KNOW?? Over 90% of people living with the Hepatitis C virus can be cured within 3 to 6 months.
