Observing World Hepatitis Day


World Hepatitis Day is observed on July 28  every year. According to World Health Organization(WHO) -  Hepatitis is an inflammation of liver. The condition can be self- limiting or can progress to fibrosis(scarring), cirrhosis or liver cancer.

The theme of World Hepatitis Day(WHD)  2020 is “Hepatitis-free future” with a strong focus on preventing Hepatitis B(HBV) among mothers and new borns. As recommended by WHO- the hepatitis B vaccine is recommended for all infants and children up to age 18 years.
