About NOhep

The NOhep fight for elimination

NOhep unites the global hepatitis community behind our shared goal: the elimination of this disease. With one voice we demand action, we demand change, an end to suffering and a chance for millions of people around the world to live a life free of this global killer.

What is NOhep?

NOhep is a global movement uniting governments, medical professionals, patients and the hepatitis community to eliminate viral hepatitis by 2030. NOhep firmly positions itself at the forefront of the elimination conversation, showcasing exemplary leadership, fostering on the ground innovative solutions and taking action to support the policy change needed to eliminate this cancer-causing illness by 2030.

Why now?

For the first time since the hepatitis viruses were discovered, there is a real possibility of living in a world without viral hepatitis now that we have preventative vaccines for hepatitis B and a highly-effective cure for hepatitis C. However, without unified global action and political will, we will miss our chance to eliminate a global killer by 2030. NOhep has been developed to raise global awareness of the disease and to unify all stakeholders to accelerate progress towards eliminating viral hepatitis.

How we work

Launched by the World Hepatitis Alliance (WHA) on World Hepatitis Day 2016, NOhep is an independent initiative led by the World Hepatitis Alliance (WHA), who acts as the secretariat, and a working group comprised of civil society and multilateral organisations. Working group members include World Health Organization, Centres for Diseases Control and the Coalition for the Eradication of Viral Hepatitis. The Working Group is growing, so check back again soon to see updates.
