World Hepatitis Day
The elimination of viral hepatitis has now been firmly put on the map. At the 69th World Health Assembly in Geneva, 194 governments adopted WHO’s Global Strategy on Viral Hepatitis, which includes a goal of eliminating hepatitis B and C in the next 13 years. The community responded by launching NOhep, the first ever global movement to eliminate viral hepatitis by 2030.
On World Hepatitis Day (WHD), 28 July, we can build on this momentum and accelerate progress towards achieving the goal of elimination by 2030.
