ELPA is proud to support World Hepatitis Day – taking place on Monday 19 May 2008. Together with over 200 patient groups from around the world we are pledging our support to the first truly global awareness event for chronic viral hepatitis B and C.

Approximately 500 million people have either hepatitis B or C and the majority of those infected do not know. 1.5 million people die every year from either hepatitis B or C.
