More than a Million people die every year through chronic and acute diseases of Hepatitis. Much more and much faster than death caused by HIV.
World Hepatitis Day is observed by the World Hepatitis Alliance, who observe the day through the performance of acts that involve the human involvement thus helping to increase the awareness amongst the people through global reach out. Even the Wold Health Organization (WHO) recognizes World Hepatitis Day as one of eight official global public health campaigns. Hepatitis being one of the most deadliest of diseases, the only way to eradicate the disease from the face of the World is simply by increasing the Human Awareness and resisting the ignorance of our visuality and enlightenment.
Hepatitis B amongst all, is the major cause of trouble and is prevalent in apes and Humans. The deadliest and abundant of all the Hepatitis stages, it results in liver cirrhosis and often lead to liver cancer, the survival chances of which are little. Hepatitis B is known to be the cause of death for more people in an year, than die of HIV. It can be prevented by taking the Hepatitis B vaccination and spreads through infectious blood and body fluids.
Organizations of the stature of World Hepatitis Alliance and WHO, hand-in-hand try to enlighten the generations of the population about the ill-effects of turning a blind eye to the disease and urging them to stop being ignorant about Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C.
