Type: Report
Region: Republic of Ireland

Description:

The Public Health Agency (PHA) is encouraging people who think they may be at risk of hepatitis B or C to get tested and prevent the spread on World Hepatitis Day (28 July). Viral hepatitis is a group of infectious diseases known as hepatitis A, B, C, D, and E. It kills 4,000 people every day worldwide and, although not very common in Northern Ireland, it is estimated 400 million people across the globe are infected. These infections can be prevented, but most people don't know how.
