World Hepatitis Day logo“It’s closer than you think” is the theme for World Hepatitis Day 2012, which falls on July 28.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 1 in 3 people globally has been infected with hepatitis, with 1 in 12 chronically infected. This year’s campaign focuses on raising awareness of the different forms of hepatitis: what they are and how they are transmitted; who is at risk; and the various methods of prevention and treatment.

Visit the WHO website for more information about World Hepatitis Day as well as hepatitis fact sheets and resources.
