WORLD HEPATITIS DAY 28 JULY 2012!
WORLD HEPATITIS DAY
28 JULY 2012!
Both hepatitis B and C are preventable and both can be managed and treated -yet thousands of new infections occur every year. Stigma, discrimination, and a lack of awareness in the general community, still impact many people’s ability to access management or treatment options.
“The long-term objective of the global World Hepatitis Day (WHD) campaign is to prevent new infections and to deliver real improvements in health outcomes for people living with hepatitis B and C. Despite the enormity of the epidemics, community knowledge remains inexplicably low. The awareness-raising events associated with WHD therefore play an important role in educating the general public about viral hepatitis.” -- Hepatitis Australia 2012
