World Hepatitis Day

July 28, 2015

Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver caused most often by a viral infection. There are five types of hepatitis viruses, designated by the letters A, B, C, D and E.

The condition affects millions of people in the world and kills nearly 1.4 million people each year.

Today hepatitis A and hepatitis B can be prevented with safe and effective vaccines that have been available since 1982.

They are 95% effective in preventing infection and its chronic consequences.

Health Canada recommends vaccination for everyone.
