Viral hepatitis is a serious public health problem and we are losing ground against it. Some states are experiencing increases in hepatitis A and hepatitis B and hepatitis C has increased more than three-fold in the United States. More than 4 million Americans from every state and all walks of life have hepatitis B or hepatitis C. These individuals are at increased risk for serious liver disease, liver cancer, and even death.
We have the tools and we have a roadmap to stop the spread of viral hepatitis and save lives. Join us in the fight as we work toward realizing the vision of the National Viral Hepatitis Action Plan:
The United States will be a place where new viral hepatitis infections have been eliminated, where all people with chronic hepatitis B and C know their status, and everyone with chronic hepatitis B and C has access to high quality health care and curative treatments, free from stigma and discrimination.
