Why is World Hepatitis Day marked on 28 July every year?
Hepatitis viruses A, B, C, D and E can cause acute and chronic infection and inflammation of the liver that can lead to cirrhosis and liver cancer. Hundreds of millions of people worldwide are chronically infected with hepatitis B and C, many of them are unaware.
Every year, close to 1.4 million people die from viral hepatitis. Find out more from the World Health Organization (WHO) here: http://j.mp/12TrYQO
