    World Hepatitis Day – July 28th

    Friday, July 28, 2017 marks World Hepatitis Day. This initiative is in response to the May 2016 World Health Assembly’s where 194 governments  adopted the World Health Organization’s Global Strategy on Viral Hepatitis, which includes a goal of eliminating hepatitis B and C in the next 13 years.

    Last year’s theme was “NOhep” while this year’s theme is “Show Your Face.” This campaign invites you to share a photo of yourself accompanied by your own personal “I AM” message to help put a human face to the elimination of viral hepatitis.
