World Hepatitis Day

28th July, worldwide.

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.

I can’t wait

‘I Can’t Wait’ is the campaign theme for WHD 2022. This will bring WHA and our global network of 318 members in 100 countries together to lead the campaign internationally.

Launched in May, 2021 the Hepatitis Can’t Wait global campaign highlights the need to accelerate hepatitis elimination efforts, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. Alongside this, it will also 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.
