In 2016, 194 governments adopted World Health Organization’s (WHO) Global Strategy on Viral Hepatitis, which includes a goal of eliminating hepatitis B and C by 2030, yet only a handful of countries are on track to meet these targets.
We are at a critical juncture. Unless we take action now, our chance to eliminate a cancer-causing illness will be missed. On WHD 2018, we are calling on all individuals and organisations to unite under the theme of “Eliminate Hepatitis” to drive action, build momentum and hold governments accountable. Because only together can we eliminate viral hepatitis by 2030.
