World Hepatitis Day 2018
World Hepatitis Day is marked globally on 28 July.
A NOHEP FUTURE
The World Hepatitis Alliance has committed to eliminating viral hepatitis by 2030.
Imagine a future without hepatitis C. Can we achieve this in the Australian bleeding disorders community?
CURING HEP C
New revolutionary hepatitis C treatments are now available in Australia.
- High cure rates - 95% overall
- Few if any side effects.
We are pleased to hear from Haemophilia Treatment Centres that most people with bleeding disorders have now been treated and cured of their hep C.
As a Partner in the national World Hepatitis Day Campaign, HFA works working with Hepatitis Australia and State and Territory Foundations on the annual national awareness campaign and is committed to making a difference on hepatitis C in Australia.
