World Hepatitis Day is observed each year on 28 July to raise awareness of viral hepatitis, an inflammation of the liver that causes severe liver disease including cancer. This year’s theme is “Hepatitis Can’t Wait”. Viral hepatitis still remains a major public health problem in India. India has an estimated 40 million chronic HBV infected people, constituting approximately 11% of the estimated global burden.

Hepatitis refers to an inflammatory condition of the liver. It is commonly caused by viral infection, but there are other possible causes of hepatitis. These include autoimmune hepatitis and hepatitis that occurs as a secondary result of medications, drugs, toxins, and alcohol.


The 5 viral types of infections are Hepatitis A, B, C, D, E.
