    World Hepatitis Day: Know the facts

    Posted on July 28th, 2018

    Did you know that viral hepatitis results in 1.34 million deaths per year? Even more shockingly, it’s estimated there are approximately 325 million people worldwide living with viral hepatitis, and of these, 300 million people are unaware of their infection. That means they’re not receiving the care they need so they face the risk of liver disease, liver cancer and passing the infection on to others.

    That’s exactly why we’re raising awareness of this global issue. Saturday 28th July 2018 is World Hepatitis Day, an annual event organised by the World Hepatitis Alliance (WHA) in collaboration with the World Health Organisation (WHO).

    Together, they’re hoping to ‘find the missing millions’ of undiagnosed people with viral hepatitis and they hope to have diagnosed 95% of silent sufferers by 2030. They’ll be doing this through various ways such as raising awareness, influencing national testing policies, encouraging people to get tested and improving availability of care.

    Here at YourGP, we can vaccinate against hepatitis A and hepatitis B. We can also test for hepatitis A, B and C and check immunity levels too. If necessary, we can refer patients for treatment.

    It’s a huge problem but we can all play our part to tackle it, even if it’s just helping to raise awareness by discussing the issue with others. You can do so by joining the conversation over on Twitter; #FindTheMissingMillions.

    I was warmly greeted by staff with genuine smiles. The staff made me feel very comfortable and engaged me in conversation about several topics which made waiting pass very pleasantly. I noticed they were proactive in making each person who arrived feel welcome, including the courier.
