Think NoHep this World Hepatitis Day

“Viral hepatitis – a group of infectious diseases known as hepatitis A, B, C, D, and E – affects hundreds of millions of people worldwide, causing acute and chronic liver disease and killing more than 1.4 million people every year, mostly from hepatitis B and hepatitis C. It is estimated that only 5% of people with chronic hepatitis know of their infection, and less that 1% have access to treatment.” – World Health Organization Dr. John W. Ward, Director, Division of Viral Hepatitis CDC’s vision is to eliminate viral hepatitis in the United States and worldwide.  World Hepatitis Day – July 28, 2016 – is an opportunity to highlight the global burden of disease and our efforts to combat viral hepatitis around the world.
