Worldwide, 300 million people are living with viral hepatitis and don't even know it. Without finding the undiagnosed, millions will continue to suffer.
On World Hepatitis Day, we're joining the initiative to find the “missing millions”. World Hepatitis Day 2019 is on Sunday, July 28th.
It's a chance for the public, the affected community, medical professionals and policy makers to come together.
In 2016, every country in the world signed up to end viral hepatitis by 2030. But currently, only 12 countries are on track to do this.
Viral hepatitis kills more than 1.34 million people each year, more than HIV/AIDs or Malaria.
But, there is a cure for hepatitis C. Also, there are vaccines and treatment for hepatitis B. The 4,000 deaths each day caused by viral hepatitis are preventable.
This is what the World Hepatitis Alliance had to say about it:
"We are at a critical juncture. Unless we take action now, our chance to eliminate a cancer-causing illness will be missed. On WHD 2018, we are calling on all individuals and organizations to unite under the theme of “Eliminate Hepatitis” to drive action, build momentum and hold governments accountable. Only together can we eliminate viral hepatitis by 2030."

"We have a special needs daughter who needed her foot looked at. Thankful that Affinity accepted her Medicaid first of all. Staff was nice, did not have a long wait, doctor was knowledgeable and understanding with our daughter, which means a lot. She was able to get x-rays done on her foot and received the results before we left. A great place to go on short notice."
"Facility was very clean. Very short wait. The doctor and x-ray tech were great!!"
"Fast and friendly. Was in and out in about an hour, and the PA and nurses were great. Much better experience than the ER."
"The Affinity care clinic in Galveston was wonderful. I walked in Memorial Day (without an appointment) and was seen by a very courteous and helpful staff. I highly recommend them."
"My experience at this urgent care facility was a pleasant one. I brought my daughter in due to an allergic reaction. The staff members there were awesome!"
