1.2 million people die of hepatitis related illness every year – timely treatment could prevent most

Hep Can’t Wait is the new multi-channel integrated campaign from the
World Hepatitis Alliance (WHA). 

Launching in the summer of 2021, it will highlight the social injustice and inequity caused by the current lack of action on hepatitis elimination and focus on the positive action needed to get on track to meet our 2030 elimination goals.

Only 8 out of 194 countries are on track to achieve the World Health Organisation’s target to eliminate hepatitis C by 2030.

The campaign will

Communicate the urgent need for action on hepatitis now

Reveal the social injustice caused by the lack of action on viral hepatitis

Raise the voices of people affected by viral hepatitis to demand positive action and fight stigma

Empower the hepatitis community to demand urgent action and overcome barriers locally

Mobilise resources and generate momentum across health systems for hepatitis elimination

Restart hepatitis services interrupted by COVID-19 and ensure hepatitis is included in ‘build back better’ programmes

Drive positive action by decision makers by generating empathy and communicating the scale of the problem, existing solutions, and benefits to their communities
