World Hepatitis Day 2016 theme announced

23 Feb 2016 Bridie Taylor

With the first ever WHO Global Elimination Strategy on Viral Hepatitis set for its likely adoption at the World Health Assembly in May, 2016 will be a pivotal year for viral hepatitis.

To mark this important milestone, the theme for World Hepatitis Day (WHD) 2016 will be… elimination.

All the materials you’ll need to support your World Hepatitis Day activities, from the slogan and key messages to posters and infographics are currently being developed to include an updated WHD identity and incorporate the elimination theme. These will be available from the official World Hepatitis Day website in April.

We are also very excited to announce that on World Hepatitis Day 2016, the global elimination movement will be launched across the world. We urge members and campaign supporters to get involved and celebrate the launch of the movement in their country. We also encourage you to profile your national priorities using the theme of elimination. A full set of resources and materials for the elimination movement will be made available.

More details coming soon!
