Wall of stories

Together our stories can change the way the world sees viral hepatitis. The stories of those living with or impacted by viral hepatitis can help educate and raise awareness, provide support and inspiration, tackle stigma and discrimination, and highlight the true impact of this global disease.

We welcome stories from every corner of the globe and from all those impacted by viral hepatitis; from patients to family members, medical professionals and policy makers - everyone has a story to tell! While we particularly encourage people who are living with, or have lived with, viral hepatitis to share their stories, viral hepatitis has a unique experience of each of our lives so we want to hear from you! Find out below how you can share your story.
