What is World Hepatitis Day?
World Hepatitis Day takes place annually on 28 July to raise awareness about viral hepatitis.
Every year, The Hepatitis C Trust comes together with partners from around the world to talk about the impact of hepatitis in our countries and to raise awareness about the hurdles people affected by hepatitis face, and overcome, every single day.
Why is World Hepatitis Day important?
Every 30 seconds, someone in the world dies from a viral hepatitis-related illness.
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
With access to prevention, testing and treatment services that are available, every hepatitis-related death is preventable.
As one of the World Health Organization’s 12 global public health days, World Hepatitis Day is a great opportunity to raise awareness and understanding about health issues and mobilise support for action, from the local community to the international stage.
