WORLD HEPATITIS DAY 28TH JULY 2019
Out of the 325 million people living with viral hepatitis globally, upward of 290 million (that’s 9 in 10!) are living with hepatitis B or hepatitis C without knowing. Unless there is a massive scale-up in screening, diagnosis and linkage to care, more people will become infected and lives will continue to be lost.
No one should have to live with viral hepatitis without knowing. Yet, globally more than 290 million men, women and children do. Unless there is a massive scale-up in screening, diagnosis and linkage to care, more people will become infected and lives will continue to be lost.
The World Hepatitis Alliance’s (WHA) global campaign – Find the Missing Millions – is global awareness-raising and advocacy campaign aimed at tackling the main barriers to diagnosis by putting civil society organizations and the affected community at the heart of the solution.
On this note, Daniel Ukwu Leadership Foundation and other organizations organized a free Hepatitis testing, Health talk and sensitization at ST. Augustine Chaplaincy IMT Enugu on Sunday 28TH JULY 2019
