About World Hepatitis Day 2018
World Hepatitis Day is observed every year on 28 July. It is marked by the World Health Organization (WHO) with the aim to raise awareness about hepatitis.
Globally, there are 325 million people living with the virus and 290 million of them are unaware. Due to a lack of awareness, viral hepatitis B and C have become major killers, leading to liver cancer that claims 1.34 million lives every year.
Timely testing and treatment of viral hepatitis B and C can save lives.
Raffles Medical Group aims to raise more awareness about hepatitis with education, screening, vaccination services and health supplements.
