Worldwide 400 million people are living with hepatitis B or C. Every year 1.4 million people die from viral hepatitis and yet all of these deaths could be prevented.


It's up to all of us to act... That is why in 2010 the World Health Organization made World Hepatitis Day one of only 4 official disease-specific world health days, to be celebrated each year on the 28th July.


Millions of people across the world now take part in World Hepatitis Day, to raise awareness about viral hepatitis, and to call for access to treatment, better prevention programs and government action.


For 2019: Find the missing millions!...


Worldwide, 300 million people are living with viral hepatitis unaware. Without finding the undiagnosed and linking them to care, millions will continue to suffer, and lives will be lost. On World Hepatitis Day this year, 28 July, we call on people from across the world to take action and raise awareness to find the “missing millions”.

    The Health Services Authority (HSA) and Cayman Islands Red Cross will mark World Hepatitis Day, which takes place annually on 28 July, by offering free health screenings for hepatitis while building greater public awareness on the elimination of mother to child transmission of hepatitis B and the importance of the hepatitis B vaccine.

    Together, the organisations will offer free hepatitis screening on Tuesday, 30 July from 9am -1pm at the Red Cross Administration Offices, Cayman Corporate Centre on Hospital Road.

    HIV and STI Programme Coordinator, Laura Elniski: "Many infected persons are unaware of their condition, as a result, awareness and availability of testing and treatment is the most important gap to be addressed. World Hepatitis Day is an opportunity to increase efforts on hepatitis, encourage actions and engagement by individuals and organisations and highlight the need for a greater response. The hepatitis test is quick, easy and confidential; a small sample of blood and results are available within a couple of days.”
