400 MILLION PEOPLE IS 400 MILLION TOO MANY

Worldwide 400 million people are living with hepatitis B or C. Every year 1.4 million people die from viral hepatitis and yet all of these deaths could be prevented. With better awareness and understanding of how we can prevent hepatitis we can eliminate this disease and save 4,000 lives a day. 

 

The Campaign

Viral hepatitis can be prevented. It's up to all of us to act

That is why in 2010 the World Health Organization made World Hepatitis Day one of only 4 official disease-specific world health days, to be celebrated each year on the 28th July. Millions of people across the world now take part in World Hepatitis Day, to raise awareness about viral hepatitis, and to call for access to treatment, better prevention programs and government action.

For every death a voice.

We’re asking 4,000 people to stand up and be counted in the quest to raise awareness of viral hepatitis. You can provide a voice for the 4,000 lives that will be lost on World Hepatitis Day this year. Together your voices become a powerful symbol for the need for action to prevent future deaths.

Simply tweet using the hashtag #4000voices or upload an image to contribute your Twitter avatar or photo to our collage and use to your voice to call for action.

Las pruebas de detección, las vacunas y los tratamientos contra hepatitis virales salvan vidas #PreventHepatitis

nah gmn ni dg #hepatitis ?! kalo ini ceritanya lain twips.. virus #hepatitis masih mgkn terinfeksi dari drg..

berbeda dari virus #hiv , spora dari #hepatitis ini bandel bgt.. susah matinya dan perlu sterilisator khusus buat matiinnya

yg bandel tu sepenernya bukan VIRUS #hepatitis nya. tapi SPORA #hepatitis nya yg lbh berbahaya

1. Spora #hepatitis ini baru mati pd suhu 121 oC. membutuhkan 2kali lipat suhu dr #hiv buat mati.

1. jadi analoginya kalo spora virus #hepatitis kita cemplungin ke air mendidih dia masih berenang2 dg aman2 dan masi sehat..

dg #Autoclav ini spora dari virus #hepatitis dijamin mati deh.. nah kaya apa si penamkanan #Autoclav itu?

semua pasien akan mendapat proses sterilisasi yg sama maksimumnya.. tdk ada perbedaan antara pasin #ODHA atau bkn, pasien #hepatitis ato bkn

La #hepatitis no discrimina por edad, raza, sexo o condición social ¿Crees que no puedes padecerla? Acude a tu médico y revisa tu hígado
