Jan 2022

Jul 28, 2022

World Hepatitis Day

  • World Hepatitis Day is observed on the 28th of July, it is important to understand this disease. Hepatitis is a disease that affects the health of our liver. It is of many kinds.
  • World Hepatitis Day is one of 11 official global public health campaigns marked by the World Health Organization (WHO), along with World Health Day, World Chagas Disease Day, World Blood Donor Day, World Malaria Day, World Immunization Week, World Tuberculosis Day, World No Tobacco Day, World Patient Safety Day, World Antimicrobial Awareness Week and World AIDS Day.
  • The inaugural International Hepatitis C Awareness day, coordinated by various European and Middle Eastern Patient Groups and Baby Muriel, took place on October 1, 2004. However, many patient groups continued to mark 'hepatitis day' on disparate dates. For this reason in 2008, the World Hepatitis Alliance in collaboration with patient groups declared May 19 the first global World Hepatitis Day.
  • Following the adoption of a resolution during the 63rd World Health Assembly in May 2010, World Hepatitis Day was given global endorsement as the primary focus for national and international awareness-raising efforts and the date was changed to July 28 (in honour of Nobel Laureate Baruch Samuel Blumberg, discoverer of the hepatitis B virus, who celebrates his birthday on that date).
  • Each year World Hepatitis Day has a theme and the theme for 2022 was 'Bringing Hepatitis care closer to you'.

  • The origin of World Nature Conservation Day is still unknown but the objective behind it is to create awareness about the flora and fauna that are going extinct. People should know that due to the overexploitation of natural resources, climate change, natural disasters and other issues have led to much destruction of life and property.
