World Hepatitis Day on Tuesday

Tuesday, July 28, is World Hepatitis Day. Events throughout the world are set to raise awareness of viral hepatitis.

About the 400 million people are afflicted with hepatitis B or C, but many don’t know it. Unfortunately, hepatitis B cannot be cured, but fortunately, there is a vaccine to prevent the disease. Hep C can be cured, but many people are denied treatment.

Now that almost everyone who has hepatitis C can be easily cured, it’s time to demand that it happens. World Hepatitis Day will spread the message.

Herr are some lists of events:

Australia

Canada

United States

  1. I haven’t been able to find an event there. I’ll contact the San Francisco Hepatitis C Task Force and see what they say.
