Viral Hepatitis

Viral hepatitis is a serious public health problem and we are losing ground against it. Some states are experiencing increases in hepatitis A and hepatitis B and hepatitis C has increased more than three-fold in the United States. More than 4 million Americans from every state and all walks of life have hepatitis B or hepatitis C. These individuals are at increased risk for serious liver disease, liver cancer, and even death.

We have the tools and we have a roadmap to stop the spread of viral hepatitis and save lives. Join us in the fight as we work toward realizing the vision of the National Viral Hepatitis Action Plan:

The United States will be a place where new viral hepatitis infections have been eliminated, where all people with chronic hepatitis B and C know their status, and everyone with chronic hepatitis B and C has access to high quality health care and curative treatments, free from stigma and discrimination.

Read the letter Roger Severino, the Director of the Office for Civil Rights, and Admiral Brett Giroir, the Assistant Secretary for Health at HHS wrote to health professional schools for renewed attention to hepatitis B and federal civil rights laws.
