Hepatitis – Know it. Confront it.Listen /
Hepatitis A, B, C, D, E – Know it. Confront it! That's the message for World Hepatitis Day, 28th July.
The World Health Organization (WHO) is urging governments to act against the five hepatitis viruses affecting millions of people worldwide which, if left untreated, can cause acute and chronic disease and kill close to 1.4 million people every year.
A country report was launched by WHO on the global hepatitis threat. The report is the largest survey ever published on hepatitis with results from 126 countries where actions are being prioritized to address viral hepatitis.
