World Hepatitis Alliance Warns that Stigma is a Major Threat to New Initiative Against Hepatitis Epidemic
Date:7/27/2011

atitis Day.

The 2011 theme for World Hepatitis Day is 'This is hepatitis... Know it.  Confront it.  Hepatitis affects everyone, everywhere.' This theme complements 'Am I Number 12?' which remains the principle awareness-raising campaign of the World Hepatitis Alliance and has been a central component of the World Hepatitis Day movement since its launch. This inclusive theme emphasises the scale of viral hepatitis (1 in 12 of the global population is chronically infected with hepatitis B or C) and helps combat the stigma often associated with hepatitis B and C by conveying the fact that these viruses do not discriminate.
