Hepatitis Queensland Inc. is a not-for-profit, non-government, community organisation, which offers support to Queenslanders affected by, or at risk of Viral Hepatitis
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. With better awareness and understanding of how we can prevent hepatitis we can eliminate this disease and save 4,000 lives a day.
It's #TimeForAction on hepatitis B and C. Together we must prevent, test, check and treat hepatitis in order to stop the more than 1,000 Australian lives lost each year to serious liver disease.
