Hepatitis Awareness Month needs you. Not sure what to do? The secret to raising awareness about hepatitis is to combine facts with passion. Then share this information. Even if you share information about viral hepatitis with only one other person, you are raising awareness. Information spreads more easily than viral hepatitis, so if you tell one person, who knows how many more people they will tell.
Here are a few facts that make me passionate about raising awareness about viral hepatitis:
- According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), hepatitis C kills more people annually than all 60 reportable infectious diseases COMBINED.
- In a recent report, the CDC reported a 21 percent increase in new hepatitis C in the U.S. between 2015-2016.
- Hepatitis C is curable.
