Hepatitis Awareness: Bringing Attention to a Silent Epidemic
Date:5/22/2013

ligently to realize -- the day when an all-oral, interferon-free, shortened treatment can be used to eradicate the virus from patients with hepatitis C.

As research in hepatitis C continues, the fight against hepatitis B does so too, and AASLD members are at the forefront of these battles. We are proud to partner with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and others at HHS wherever there is an opportunity to raise awareness of both hepatitis B and C.

  • May is Hepatitis Awareness Month.
  • May 2013 is the second anniversary of the National Viral Hepatitis Action Plan.
  • May 19, 2013, was the second annual Hepatitis Testing Day.
  • May 23, 2013, is Hepatitis B and C Testing and Awareness Day in the U.S. House of Representatives.

AASLD is the leading organization of scientists and healthcare professionals committed to preventing and curing liver disease. AASLD was founded in 1950 by a small group of leading liver specialists and has grown to an international society responsible for all aspects of hepatology.
