Make the elimination of viral hepatitis our next greatest achievement
At the 69th World Health Assembly (23-28 May 2016) governments will decide the fate of viral hepatitis. They will either adopt or reject the first Global Viral Hepatitis Strategy, which sets a goal of eliminating viral hepatitis B and C by 2030. Share this video and support NOhep.org on World Hepatitis Day (28 July) to ensure governments commit to making the elimination of viral hepatitis our next greatest achievement.

Viral hepatitis is the seventh leading cause of death globally, accounting for 1.4 million deaths per year – more than HIV/AIDS, or TB, or malaria.
The World Hepatitis Alliance provides global leadership and supports action that will halt the viral hepatitis death toll and improve lives. Through advocacy and policy work, building capacity among our members and raising global awareness, we aim to give viral hepatitis the priority it deserves.
