Hepatitis Awareness Month

May 26, 2023
May is Hepatitis Awareness Month, a time to spread awareness about this disease and how it affects millions of people worldwide.

Hepatitis is a viral infection that affects the liver and can lead to serious health complications if left untreated.

There are five main types of hepatitis: A, B, C, D, and E. Hepatitis B and C can lead to chronic liver disease and liver cancer, and it's estimated that over 290 million people worldwide are living with viral hepatitis without knowing it.

So this month, let's educate ourselves and others about the importance of prevention, testing, and treatment. Let's support those living with hepatitis and advocate for better access to care. Together, we can make a difference and help eliminate hepatitis as a public health threat.
