Make the elimination of viral hepatitis our next greatest achievement

December 19, 2019


We live in a world
built upon achievements. We have travelled to the moon,
developed vaccines, created the internet
and even cloned life itself. Today, we have the opportunity to create
our next greatest achievement, the elimination of viral hepatitis. The journey has already started. Since viral hepatitis
was discovered 50 years ago, highly effective vaccines, treatments
and a cure have been developed. Yet 10 million
are still newly infected, 95% of those
living with the illness are unaware. Less than 1% access treatment and 1.4 million die each year. We are at a turning point. The WHO’s first ever
viral hepatitis elimination strategy signals a commitment to reach the overall goal
of elimination by 2030. If governments can reach
a set of prevention, testing and treatment targets, 90% of infants will receive
a hepatitis B birth dose vaccination. All blood donations
will be screened. 90% of people
will have access to safe injections. 90% of people
will be aware of their illness and 80% of people will be treated. The result
of all these achievements? A 65% drop in the death toll
and 90% reduction in new cases. That’s 7.1 million lives
saved by 2030. Join us, to ensure
that action is taken by governments to reach these targets. Join us, to make
the elimination of viral hepatitis our next greatest achievement. NOhep is right. NOhep is smart. NOhep is for all. NOhep is our next
greatest achievement. Join NOhep to make
the elimination of viral hepatitis our next greatest achievement.
