Why Have a Day Dedicated to Hepatitis?

July 28, 2015
Viral hepatitis is the most common cause of chronic liver disease worldwide. In fact, the two most common forms, hepatitis B (HBV) or hepatitis C (HCV), infect over 500 million people around the world – compared to 31 million with HIV. Chronic HBV is the most common cause of viral hepatitis followed by HCV. These two viruses are responsible for up to 2 million deaths a year. Therefore, it makes sense to call attention to this important global issue and this is why July 28 is World Hepatitis Day.
