Hep B is a devastating global epidemic
Hep B is a contagious disease affecting 270 million people world-wide. Although incurable, it can be easily prevented with a vaccination. Treatment for Hep B sufferers focuses on managing the symptoms.
Around 1 million people every year living with Hep B will die early due to liver cancer or liver cirrhosis.
In some countries and communities, the stigma associated means people living with Hep B suffer alone and without support. Many affected people live in silence not disclosing their infection status to anyone.
Hep B Community Is Providing A 'Virtual Community Hall'
The Hep B Community is a safe and inclusive online platform for people with Hep B (and their families) to connect to one another and access trustworthy health information.
As more people turn to the internet for advice, we need to grow our platform to support people affected by Hep B to safely connect with one another, without judgement, and get trusted guidance for healthy living.
