Today "July 28th" is World Hepatitis Day 2017 and from all indications this year,the general consensus amongst stakeholders all over the world is to work towards a central goal, to "ELIMINATE HEPATITIS"-an inflammatory(body's reaction to injury) condition of the liver mostly caused by the Hepatitis Viruses.
We would explore simple measures that can be taken to "ELIMINATE HEPATITIS" in a follow up and more explanatory article, especially as has been summarised in the World Health Organisation's (WHO) first "Global Health Sector Strategy On Viral Hepatitis 2016-2021"but for now,we must first appreciate the magnitude of the problem,so as to better understand how important eliminating Hepatitis amongst other disease conditions,is to the world. See global statistics in the WHO Infographic below.
