World Hepatitis Day, held on 28 July each year, is an international annual day observed by the United Nations and one of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) seven officially mandated global public health days.

World Hepatitis Day is an opportunity to step up national and international efforts on hepatitis, encourage actions and engagement by individuals, partners and the public and highlight the need for a greater global response as outlined in the WHO’s Global hepatitis report of 2017.

We were honoured to support Hepatitis Australia in their important work in progressing the 2030 elimination agenda in the new parliament and supporting them build on existing relationships and new relationships in the 47th parliament to achieve their goals.
