On 28 July World Hepatitis Day (WHD) brings the world together to raise awareness of the global burden of viral hepatitis and to influence real change in disease prevention and access to testing, treatment and care. One of just four disease-specific global awareness days officially endorsed by the World Health Organization (WHO), WHD unites patient organisations, governments and the general public to boost the global profile of viral hepatitis.

The sixth official WHD took place on 28 July 2016 and was a huge success, with over 1000 events in 174 countries across the globe.

A global grassroots movement, NOhep unites those working in the field of hepatitis and others from across the world around one common purpose: the elimination of viral hepatitis by 2030.
