World Hepatitis Day
28th July 2012
“It’s closer than you think” is the theme of this year’s World Hepatitis Day, which takes place on 28 July 2012.
The 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.
Despite its staggering toll on health, hepatitis remains a group of diseases that are largely unknown, undiagnosed and untreated.
Hepatitis B is increasingly infecting men that have sex with men, but can be prevented by getting vaccinated - for free, and in confidence at any sexual health clinic in Cornwall. Call 01872 255044 to make an appointment.
