find the missing millions

290 million people across the world don’t know they are living with viral hepatitis.
Unless detected and treated it can cause liver disease, cirrhosis and liver cancer.

The hepatitis B virus (HBV) is transmitted between people through contact with the blood or other body fluids of an infected person.
The hepatitis C virus (HCV) is spread through direct contact with infected blood.

Most common routes of transmission for hepatitis B or C viruses are the needlestick injuries in healthcare settings.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of healthcare workers, while caring for patients, are at risk to exposure to bloodborne pathogens potentially resulting in infections such as Hepatitis B and C.

Help us raise awareness!
Help us to find the missing millions!
Help us to eliminate hepatitis!
