Each month we feature select National Health Observances (NHOs) that align with our priorities for improving health across the nation. To help you spread the word, we also provide links to resources that you can use to promote these NHOs. In July we’re raising awareness about the importance of viral hepatitis.
Below, we’ve pulled together some resources that will help you spread the word about this NHO in your community.
- World Hepatitis Day
Each year on July 28, the World Health Organization sponsors World Hepatitis Day to raise awareness about the global burden of viral hepatitis. This year’s theme, I Can’t Wait, emphasizes that we must act now to address the problem of hepatitis. Use these campaign resources from the World Hepatitis Alliance to raise awareness online and in your community. You can also encourage people to protect themselves from Hepatitis B and learn about screening for Hepatitis C using our easy-to-understand MyHealthfinder resources. And don’t forget to explore the Healthy People 2030 Infectious Disease objectives.
We hope you’ll use these resources to promote important NHOs on your channels with your networks. Together, we can take steps to improve the nation’s health.
