World Hepatitis Day- July 28, 2014

Posted by on Jul 23, 2014

What is World Hepatitis Day? The World Hepatitis Day website describes World Hepatitis Day as an annual event that brings attention to chronic viral hepatitis worldwide and stands in solidarity with persons who have hepatitis B or C, two forms of life-threatening liver disease. Approximately 500 million people – one in 12 worldwide – are infected with viral hepatitis B or C. In Canada, an estimated 550,000 people have viral hepatitis, with many unaware of their status. Many persons with viral hepatitis experience no obvious symptoms until serious liver damage has occurred. In fact, in Canada, about 1 in 5 people with Hepatitis C do not know they have the virus. If left untreated, viral hepatitis can lead to severe damage to the liver, liver cancer, and the need for a liver transplant. The 2014 WHD Committee has decided to maintain last year’s slogan for this year’s World Hepatitis Day event to encourage testing: Know your status? Get tested. Help us increase awareness about viral hepatitis. For more information you can visit the World Hepatitis Day website or www.catie.ca On July 28,...
