Hep Can't Wait

With a person dying every 30 seconds from a hepatitis related illness we can’t wait to act on viral hepatitis.

  • People living with viral hepatitis unaware can’t wait for testing
  • People living with hepatitis can’t wait for life saving treatments
  • Expectant mothers can’t wait for hepatitis screening and treatment
  • Newborn babies can’t wait for birth dose vaccination
  • People affected by hepatitis can’t wait to end stigma and discrimination
  • Community organisations can’t wait for greater investment
  • Decision makers can’t wait and must act now to make hepatitis elimination a reality through political will and funding.

The Hep Can't Wait campaign aims to

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
