On World Hepatitis Day 2010, Nationaal Hepatitis Centrum made a press-release, which was picked up by several newspapers. Some doctors, who had been requested to do so by NHC, gave interviews, also on tv.
Nationaal Hepatitis Centrum also created a movie which informs the public about possible routes of hepatitis transmission. It encourages people at risk to get tested. The movie can be found here.
This movie is also shown in restaurants, public transport, etc on information screens.
We did get media attention! Also, this is the first time we managed to get someone on tv to talk about hepatitis.
