World Cancer Day

February 4

World Cancer Day unites the world’s population in the fight against cancer.

Hep B and C are key causes of primary liver cancer – the 2nd most common cancer in the world.

WHO estimates that 788,000 people die from primary liver cancer every year. More than half of these deaths (60%) are caused by the long-term consequences of Hep B and C infections: 43% are attributable to chronic Hep B and 17% to chronic Hep C.

An effective response requires the timely prevention and early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of Hep B and C. Hep B vaccination is highly effective, while harm reduction services can reduce the risks of Hep B and C infection.

To eliminate hepatitis and prevent cancer deaths, actions must be taken in global and national leadership; expansion of effective prevention, testing, and treatment programs; and adequate resources for hepatitis and cancer.
