The World Health Organization and the World Hepatitis Alliance have joined forces to talk about this disease and how it's impacting our communities.

Did you know?
  • The world's 8th biggest killer is Viral Hepatitis.
  • There are vaccines available for two types of Viral Hepatitis: Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B.
  • Viral Hepatitis progresses faster among people with HIV.
  • About 25% of people living with HIV in the U.S. are coinfected with Hepatitis C.
