Webinar

 World Hepatitis Day (WHD) takes places every year on 28 July bringing the world together under a single theme to raise awareness of the global burden of viral hepatitis and to influence real change. Viral hepatitis B and C affect as much as 325 million people across the world. It is also known to cause 1.4 million deaths in a year. It is the second major killer infectious disease after tuberculosis. 9 times people are affected by hepatits than HIV. On World Hepatitis Day, the idea is to spread awareness about the fact that hepatitis is preventable and treatable. Hepatitis C, is in fact curable. 80% people, however, still lack prevention, testing and treatment services. On the occasion of World Hepatitis Day, World Health Organization (WHO) has proposed the theme, "Invest in eliminating hepatitis".
