World Hepatitis Day 2018

Organised and held each year on July 28th by the World Hepatitis Alliance, World Hepatitis Day draws attention to disease which, while certainly heard of by many, is not fully understood by most. Yet right now, 300 million people around the world are unaware that they’re living with viral hepatitis.

Each year, over 1.3 million people die from hepatitis, while two in every three liver cancer deaths are directly attributable to it. Using the day as the perfect opportunity to highlight this issue, charities around the world continue to find those undiagnosed people and push them towards the care they need, avoiding yet more preventable deaths.
