World Hepatitis Day 2022

World Hepatitis Day will be marked internationally on 28 July 2022 and is one of the World Health Organization’s seven official global public health days.

It is an opportunity to come together to step up national and international efforts to eliminate viral hepatitis, in particular hepatitis B and hepatitis C. The global and Australian theme for World Hepatitis Day 2022 is Hepatitis Can’t Wait.

World Hepatitis Day 2022

Many people don’t know that they have hep C. For example, you could be at risk if you have a bleeding disorder and ever had a blood product before 1993. 

Or some people have been cured but still need follow-up for their liver health, especially if they have cirrhosis.

Do you think this might be you? Or someone you know?

By talking to our friends, family or a doctor about testing, treatment and liver health checks we can work towards the goal of viral hepatitis elimination by 2030.

On World Hepatitis Day we are reminded not to wait – know your hep C status, have treatment to cure hep C, where possible, and follow up on your liver health after treatment.

Keep an eye out on our website and social media for more information and activities in the week leading up to 28 July.
