World Hepatitis Day

World Hepatitis Day is one of only a handful of ‘World Health Days’ that are officially recognised by the World Health Organization.

In May 2016, the World Health Assembly adopted the first ever Global Strategy for viral hepatitis which commits all countries to working towards the goal of eliminating viral hepatitis as a public health threat by 2030.

To support the Global Strategy, the World Hepatitis Alliance launched NOhep on World Hepatitis Day 2016. NOhep is a global movement to eliminate viral hepatitis; it provides a platform for people to come together and take action to ensure global commitments are met and viral hepatitis is eliminated by 2030.

For further information go to http://www.worldhepatitisday.org/

World Hepatitis Day in Australia is coordinated nationally by Hepatitis Australia and rolled out at local level by Hepatitis Australia member and partner organisations. 

Australia is leading the way for a NOhep future.  A big focus for World Hepatitis Day in Australia is treatment; an important step on the road to elimination of viral hepatitis.

Effective viral hepatitis treatments are available in Australia to cure hepatitis C and to help manage hepatitis B.

We encourage all Australians living with
hepatitis B or hepatitis C to speak to their doctor about treatment options or call the national hepatitis info line 1800 437 222 for more information.
