Why do we need NOhep?

Viral hepatitis is one of the leading causes of death globally, accounting for more deaths per year than HIV/AIDS or malaria.

Despite killing 1.4 million people every year, the response to viral hepatitis is critically under-funded and widely overlooked by international funders and development partners.

290 million people are completely unaware they are living with the virus.

This puts them at risk of developing fatal liver disease or unknowingly passing the virus on to others.

A human rights injustice

People living with viral hepatitis often face discrimination and stigma which impacts their health, employment and relationships. Those hit hardest by the disease are often from marginalised communities, including refugees, indigenous peoples, people who inject drugs and LGBT people, and face multiple barriers to prevention, diagnosis, and treatment services.

...but we CAN eliminate this silent killer

There is an effective vaccine against and treatment for hepatitis B, and a cure for hepatitis C.

Only five countries are on track to eliminate hepatitis C

In 2016, every country in the world committed to eliminating viral hepatitis by 2030

However, few countries are on track to meet the World Health Organization’s targets.

Now, we must act to make sure elimination becomes a reality
