Today is World Hepatitis Day 2017: Eliminate Hepatitis

World Hepatitis Day (WHD), 28 July, is a day when the world joins together to drive action, to transform the lives of 300+ million people and to play a part in the fight to eliminate viral hepatitis by 2030. Everyone has the power to influence real change in disease prevention, access to testing, treatment and care. Together we can eliminate viral hepatitis as a public health threat by 2030.

The elimination of viral hepatitis has now been firmly put on the map. At the 69th World Health Assembly in Geneva, 194 governments adopted WHO’s Global Strategy on Viral Hepatitis, which includes a goal of eliminating hepatitis B and C in the next 13 years. The community responded by launching NOhep, the first ever global movement to eliminate viral hepatitis by 2030.
