There are lots of ways you can get involved with the World Hepatitis Alliance. Take a look at the list below, or email us to find out more at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Become a Member
If you are part of an organisation or group with a main focus on viral hepatitis, why not become a member? There are lots of benefits to membership, and it’s free to join. You can find out more about membership and download the application forms on our membership page.
Become a Friend of the Alliance
If you know someone who is not part of a patient group but who does good work in line with our activities, you can nominate them to be a Friend of the Alliance. This title is reserved for people such as doctors, researchers or advocates who may take part in World Hepatitis Day, or who work for increased hepatitis awareness and priority throughout the year. Nominate someone by emailing email@example.com
World Hepatitis Day
There are always lots of activities going on for World Hepatitis Day. We have member organisations around the world that organise various events, and at the World Hepatitis Alliance we also coordinate global activities to celebrate the day. To find out what is going on this year, check out our World Hepatitis Day page or email us. Alternatively, why not set up your own event this year? We have lots of toolkits and campaign materials to help you get started.
Tell your story
Many people have no idea how prevalent viral hepatitis is. This ignorance leads to misunderstanding and stigma, and also increases the risk of infection. As part of our campaign to tackle this we have developed a Wall of Stories page. This wall aims to reveal the human side of viral hepatitis and to break the stigma attached to it. If you are a patient and would like to share your story, visit our Wall of Stories page. You don’t have to add a photo or your name, just add your story to hundreds of others, and help change the face of viral hepatitis.
Get in touch with your Government
One of the best ways to change policy within your country is to talk to your Minister of Health and other policy makers. We have developed various tools for your use that will help you advocate effectively for real policy change. Check out the following pages to see which one is right for you and your government.
Advocate for hepatitis awareness
Why not set up an event or campaign in your local area? Our awareness-raising toolkits contain loads of helpful information to help you organise your own events, and also provide information on using social media, working with businesses and engaging the media.
