World hepatitis Day 2019

The VHPB endorsers the annual World Hepatitis Day 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 and raise awareness on the prevention and control of viral hepatitis, aiming to find the “missing millions”.

A World Hepatitis Day film has been made to raise awareness of viral hepatitis.

The VHPB not only draws the attention to viral hepatitis during the world hepatitis day, but continues to sensitize people and policy makers throughout the year, and year after year. The VHPB assists policy makers, health care providers and public health specialist and guides countries to prevent and control viral hepatitis:

  • In October 2018, we discussed the management of viral hepatitis in Russia (Moscow, Russia); Prevention and control of viral hepatitis in the Russian Federation: Lessons learnt and the way forward.
  • In April 2019 (Vilnius, Litvia) a multi topic meeting was organized to discuss the impact of viral hepatitis treatment and vaccination in non-responders and occult hepatitis on public health.
  • At present, we are preparing a country meeting in Hungary (Budapest, Hungary) to investigate the way Hungary is controlling, managing and preventing viral hepatitis: Elimination of Viral Hepatitis in Hungary: Lessons learnt and the way forward.
