World Hepatitis Day 2018 Campaign

Find the Missing Millions

Worldwide, 300 million people are living with viral hepatitis unaware. Without finding the undiagnosed and linking them to care, millions will continue to suffer, and lives will be lost. On World Hepatitis Day, 28 July, we call on people from across the world to take action, raise awareness and join in the quest to find the “missing millions”.

How to get involved:

Viral hepatitis is one of the biggest global health threats of our time

  • 1.34 million deaths a year
  • Causes two in every three liver cancer deaths
  • 300 million people living with viral hepatitis unaware

But together we can eliminate viral hepatitis

  • Global elimination strategy adopted in 2016
  • A cure for hepatitis C and treatment and vaccine for hepatitis B exists
  • Viral hepatitis included in Sustainable Development Goals

Join the quest to find the missing millions on World Hepatitis Day 2018.
