Hepatitis Awareness Month

February 24 @ 10:13 am

Hepatitis Awareness Month, observed in May and sponsored by the Division of Viral Hepatitis, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is a time to increase awareness of hepatitis, promote the need for a cure, and spur advocacy on behalf of those suffering with the emotional, financial and physical burden of hepatitis.

Hepatitis Awareness Month educates the public that Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C can become chronic, life-long infections that can lead to liver cancer. Millions of Americans are living with chronic viral hepatitis, and many do not know they are infected.

Hepatitis Testing Day is observed on May 19th each year in the United States and is an opportunity to remind health care providers and the public which populations should be tested for chronic viral hepatitis.
