July 28th is recognised across the globe as World Hepatitis Day (WHD).
World Hepatitis Day is one of only eight designated health days endorsed by the World Health Organization as mandated by the World Health Assembly. Over 400 million people worldwide are living with hepatitis B or C. Every year, 1.4 million people die from viral hepatitis. With better awareness, understanding and management many of these deaths can be prevented.
A new World Hepatitis Day – Australia website is currently under construction and will be accessible atwww.worldhepatitisday.org.au
