‘NOhep’: Eliminating viral hepatitis by 2030
On World Hepatitis Day, 28 July 2016, the World Hepatitis Alliance, together with a large number of civil society organizations, will launch a global movement to eliminate viral hepatitis by 2030.
Contributed by the World Hepatitis Alliance.
The movement called “NOhep” aims to unite those working in the field of hepatitis and others from across the world around one common purpose: the elimination of viral hepatitis by 2030. The launch of the movement follows the recently adopted WHO Global Health Sector Strategy for Viral Hepatitis (GHSS), where 194 Member States agreed to a goal of eliminating hepatitis B and hepatitis C as public health threat by 2030.
NOhep aims to build up a global umbrella platform for people to speak out, be engaged and take action to ensure that global commitments are met and viral hepatitis is eliminated by 2030. The sixth World Hepatitis Day on 28 July 2016 will serve as a vital opportunity to step up national and international efforts on hepatitis to a new level, and to spark action to implement the global WHO strategy to achieve these goals.
