Make the elimination of viral hepatitis our next greatest achievement
On 28 May, 194 Member States made a historic commitment to eliminate viral hepatitis by 2030. At the 69th World Health Assembly, governments unanimously voted to adopt the first ever Global Viral Hepatitis Strategy, signalling the greatest global commitment in viral hepatitis to date. Share this video to ensure governments countries honour their commitment 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.
