World Hepatitis Day (WHD) takes places every year on 28 July bringing the world together under a single theme to raise awareness of the global burden of viral hepatitis and to influence real change.
The 2021 theme this year is 'Hepatitis Can’t Wait' - and we at SANPUD along with partners will be hosting a virtual event for World Hepatitis Day 2021, which aims to increase knowledge and drive forward efforts to eliminate viral hepatitis as a public health threat in South Africa.
With a person dying every 30 seconds from a hepatitis related illness – even in the current COVID-19 crisis – we can’t wait to act on viral hepatitis.
We're proud that a representative of our Regional Network, Koketso Mokubane, will be actively involved on the day presenting a segment on Viral Hepatitis, and leading a breakaway group discussion, as part of the World Hepatitis Day webinar series.
Date: Wednesday 28th July 2021
