Hepatitis Day takes place each year on July 28th. Someone dies every 30 seconds from a hepatitis-related illness. World Globally, 290 million people are unaware that they have viral hepatitis. Hepatitis means inflammation of the liver. The most common types of viral hepatitis are hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C. The liver is a very important organ, it processes nutrients, filters the blood, and fights infections. Symptoms can often take decades to manifest, so many who have it are unaware of their status. This year’s campaign is a call to action for people across the world to act and raise awareness to find the “missing millions”. Viral hepatitis can be prevented and treated. This is the perfect chance to increase awareness and know your hepatitis status and spread the word about treatment.
