This Saturday, July 28th, is World Hepatitis Day, an annual international awareness event for the over half a billion people globally affected by hepatitis. World Hepatitis Day is one of the eight official WHO health days that is supported by many organizations such as the World Hepatitis Alliance, HHS, and CDC.
Because the symptoms of Hepatitis B and C infections may not show up for years or decades, late testing and treatment has rendered hepatitis as a major cause of liver cancer. Every year, more than a million deaths are associated with hepatitis. As a result, hepatitis research, in particular the study of hepatitis B and C viruses, is identified as a priority for the NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).
