World Hepatitis Day

World Hepatitis Day is marked globally on 28 July. 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?

Why miss out on a cure for hepatitis C?


The new hepatitis C treatments can cure nearly everyone and have few, if any, side-effects.

Haemophilia Treatment Centres are currently collecting data to check which of their patients have been cured of their hep C and their current liver health.

You can help this work by making sure your HTC has your results for:

  • your hepatitis C treatment
  • your latest HCV PCR test
  • your most recent liver health test/fibroscan.

Ask your hepatitis specialist or GP if you need follow-up for your liver health. For example, if you have cirrhosis and have successful treatment, you will still need to have liver health checks regularly.

Many people with bleeding disorders have been treated and cured but some might not even know they have hep C.
