World Hepatitis Day is this Thursday, July 28. Launched in 2008 by the World Hepatitis Alliance, this annual event provides an international focus for advocates and people living with hepatitis B and C. World Hepatitis Day is an opportunity for interested groups and individuals to raise awareness and influence real change in disease prevention and access to testing and treatment.

Motivated by the World Health Assembly’s objectives to eliminate viral hepatitis as a public health threat by 2030, this year’s theme focuses on eliminating hepatitis. NOhep is a global movement that provides “a platform for people to speak out, be engaged and take action to ensure global commitments are met and viral hepatitis is eliminated by 2030.”

Some goals are:

  • To achieve elimination
  • Improve awareness
  • Increased diagnosis
  • Universal vaccination
  • Blood and injection safety
  • Harm reduction  
  • Treatment for more people
