World Hepatitis Day 2020

The VHPB endorsers the annual World Hepatitis Day campaign: Find the missing millions.

Worldwide, 290 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 to find the “missing millions”.
