"Think Again." 
The theme has been set with an aim of creating a global awareness about the Hepatitis virus and to encourage its prevention, treatment and diagnosis. Of the five types of viruses, B and C are considered to be dangerous.

Viral hepatitis – a group of infectious diseases known as hepatitis A, B, C, D, and E – affects millions of people worldwide, causing acute and chronic liver disease and killing close to 1.4 million people every year.

Do think about this;-
Viral hepatitis kills 1.5 million people worldwide each year. That’s as many people as HIV/AIDS. Viral hepatitis is the leading cause of liver cancer. Liver cancer is the second biggest cancer killer. 

Symptoms of viral hepatitis often go unnoticed. Feeling fine? Are you sure? Get tested.
Viral hepatitis can be avoided. Know the risks.Prevention  is better, be Safe? 

Viral hepatitis can be treated. Everybody deserves the chance. Protect against viral hepatitis. Vaccination works.  Vaccinate your children.

Viral hepatitis doesn’t discriminate. Neither should you. Hepatitis: Think again.
Are you a team player? Spectator? think again Viral hepatitis can be beaten. Play your part.
Hepatitis: Think again
