WHO aims to address the following objectives for World Hepatitis Day 2019:
To urge national and regional policymakers increase political and financial commitments for hepatitis response.

To highlight WHO’s new costing estimates for hepatitis elimination within the context of health-related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and UHC by 2030.

To encourage people to come forward to access hepatitis prevention, testing and treatment services.

For the public

Are you at risk? Get tested! Early testing means early treatment to prevent illness and to save your life.

Are you protected? Hepatitis B and C are preventable. Every injection should be safe. Hepatitis B vaccine provides lifelong protection. Hepatitis B and C can be transmitted by sex, therefore protect yourself by using condoms.

Be strong: get treated or cured of hepatitis. If you tested positive, ask whether you need treatment - do not delay.

Living with hepatitis B? Some people will need treatment and can stay healthy with life-long therapy.

Living with hepatitis C? 3-month treatment can cure the infection.
