The World Hepatitis Alliance is a not-for-profit international umbrella Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), with the WHO to coordinate World Hepatitis Day in 2012.
For World Hepatitis Day 2011, the Alliance has developed several campaign materials to be used on and around World Hepatitis Day in order to help raise awareness of hepatitis. You can access these here.
In addition, a ‘Campaign Materials Creation Tool’ has been developed to enable interested groups and individuals around the world to adapt global campaign materials for use locally. This tool allows materials to be adapted in local languages and can be accessed here.
In May 2010, the WHO agreed a resolution on viral hepatitis. The resolution calls for a globally coordinated response to hepatitis, covering vaccination, safe healthcare and injections, testing and treatment for patients, education and advocacy for those living with the disease, and research and support to help countries formulate their own national responses.
