Viral hepatitis, a group of infectious diseases, affects millions of people worldwide. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates 325 million people worldwide are living with chronic hepatitis B or chronic hepatitis C. Deaths due to viral hepatitis reached 1.34 million in 2015, comparable to the number of deaths caused by tuberculosis and HIV. Yet, effective measures such as educational programs for people who inject drugs and ensuring infants born to hepatitis B infected mothers are vaccinated against hepatitis B would dramatically reduce hepatitis B and C infections worldwide.

Join us for this session of Public Health Grand Rounds.
