July 28 is World Hepatitis Day

Every year on 28 July, WHO and partners mark World Hepatitis Day to increase awareness and understanding of viral hepatitis and the diseases that it causes. This date honours the birthday of Nobel Laureate Professor Baruch Samuel Blumberg, discoverer of the hepatitis B virus.

Awareness is a great and necessary thing but Someone (not me) needs to come up with a different angle

Stories work best
