World Hepatitis Day 2017

Eliminate Viral Hepatitis by 2030

"Together we can all put a human face to the elimination of viral hepatitis."

WGO secretariat staff celebrating World Hepatitis Day
in front of the Milwaukee Art Museum Calatrava in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA

"Recognizing the consequences of viral hepatitis and its effect on the global community, specifically the 400 million people worldwide living with this virus, and in support of World Hepatitis Day, WGO joins its partners in the goal of eliminating viral hepatitis globally as a public health threat by 2030!"

Professor David Bjorkman, President of World Gastroenterology Organisation

What is World Hepatitis Day?

World Hepatitis Day is an awareness campaign organized by the World Hepatitis Alliance. World Hepatitis Day is celebrated every 28 July to bring about the awareness of the global burden of viral hepatitis, with the primary campaign goal of eliminating viral hepatitis by 2030.

“Acute viral hepatitis (AVH) is a systemic infection predominantly affecting the liver. It is most often caused by viruses that are hepatotropic (hepatitis A, B, C, D, and E).Other viral infections may also occasionally affect the liver, such as cytomegalovirus (CMV), herpes simplex, coxsackievirus, and adenovirus. Whereas hepatitis A and E are self-limiting, infection with hepatitis C and to a lesser extent hepatitis B usually become chronic” - Read more from the WGO Acute Viral Hepatitis Guideline.

"It is time to make World Hepatitis Day, not an awareness moment, but a remembrance landmark. Let us tackle Viral Hepatitis and score for a future Hepatitis-Free World!"

Professor Guilherme Macedo, WGO Treasurer and Director of the WGO Porto Gastroenterology and Hepatology Training Center

Why is World Hepatitis Day Important?

“Viral hepatitis and its consequences (cirrhosis, liver failure, liver cancer, death), have been ignored far too long. Hepatitis B and C alone affect over 1 in 12 of the world’s population and cause more chronic disease and death than HIV, TB or malaria. Both hepatitis B and C are preventable and hepatitis C can be cured. Several countries have made it national policy to completely eliminate hepatitis C, including Georgia, Mongolia, Egypt, Pakistan, Portugal and Australia. It is time to unite and decide to eliminate hepatitis C globally. At the same time we must dedicate ourselves to eliminating hepatitis B through true universal vaccination, including the birth dose, with a vaccine that has been available since 1982! Then, like smallpox before it and polio, now down to fewer than 100 new cases in only 2 countries worldwide, hepatitis B can become part of our ancient medical history.”

Professor Douglas R. LaBrecque, Chair of the WGO Hepatology Interest Group

What Is WGO’s Role in Joining the Effort to Eliminate Viral Hepatitis By 2030?

World Digestive Health Day 2018

The World Gastroenterology Organisation (WGO) will raise awareness of Viral Hepatitis, B and C in 2018 through its annual public advocacy and awareness campaign, World Digestive Health Day (WDHD).

"On behalf of the WGO Foundation, we would like to express our continued support for World Hepatitis Day and declare action. WGO has in place various education and training programs focused on hepatology and resources that are used to help create awareness of viral hepatitis, which is supported through the work of the WGO and the WGO Foundation. It is our hope that you will join us in our efforts to encourage active participation in eliminating viral hepatitis and other important diet and the gut related digestive diseases through advocacy programs such as "World Digestive Health Day" worldwide."

Professor Cihan Yurdaydin, President-Elect and Chair of the WGO Foundation

WDHD is celebrated each year on May 29th with associated activities and initiatives continuing throughout and beyond the campaign year. WDHD will provide gastroenterologists, their patients and the public, with an understanding of the prevention, prevalence, diagnosis, management and/or treatment of Viral Hepatitis, B and C.

The campaign will be led by Brian McMahon, MD (U.S.A.) and Yun-Fan Liaw, MD (Taiwan).

Updated Hepatitis C Guideline with Cascades

The World Gastroenterology Organisation (WGO) has released the newly updated “Diagnosis, Management, and Prevention of Hepatitis C” Guideline with Cascades.

This updated Hepatitis C Guideline and Cascades, chaired by Professor Muhammad Umar, Principal/Dean, Rawalpindi Medical College, Chief Allied Hospitals, Rawalpindi, Pakistan, will be of interest to all health professionals in primary and secondary care involved in the management of people with hepatitis C infection in different countries of the world. It covers all stages of the disease management pathway: screening, testing, diagnosis, referral, treatment, care, and follow-up of children and adults with, or exposed to, hepatitis C (HCV) infection. “These guidelines will help the Physician treating Chronic Hepatitis C patients particularly in resource constrained countries as well as categorizing their patients for future therapies with DAA. During the last four years (2013-2017), an enormous amount of new evidence in the management of HCV has been published and we deemed it was time to update the guidelines,” noted Professor Umar. It can be accessed at http://www.worldgastroenterology.org/hepatitis-c.html.

PRESS RELEASE
For Release 26 May, 2017


Join WGO in Celebrating World Digestive Health Day 2017

Every 29 May, the World Gastroenterology Organisation (WGO) celebrates World Digestive Health Day (WDHD) and initiates a worldwide, public health campaign through its more than 100 member societies and regional affiliates which reach over 50,000 individual gastroenterologists, hepatologists, GI surgeons, and other health care professionals worldwide. Each year focuses upon a particular digestive or liver disorder, with the focus for 2017 being Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).

About World Digestive Health Day 2017
Led by Chairman, Dr. Charles Bernstein (Canada), the goal of the WDHD 2017 campaign is to raise awareness of Inflammatory Bowel Disease, a group of idiopathic chronic inflammatory intestinal conditions. WDHD aims to provide a broad overview of this increasingly common disease by providing gastroenterologists, their patients and the lay public, with an understanding of the latest basic and clinical research in the pathogenesis, investigation, and treatment of IBD. 'Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD): Navigating Evolving Therapies in an Evolving Disease' is the WDHD campaign theme for 2017 and seeks to translate research into clinical practice and facilitate communication between physicians, pharmacists, allied health professionals, healthcare payers, and the public. According to Dr. Charles Bernstein, “We want to ensure that patients receive appropriate dietary and lifestyle advice as well as appropriate investigations and treatment, relevant to their condition and circumstances. Furthermore, we want to ensure awareness of the disease and its management is raised in countries where IBD is being increasingly and newly diagnosed.”

The task of WGO is supported by a Steering Committee with a global perspective. The Steering Committee provides expertise on IBD, guiding the course of the campaign and the development of the educational and training materials, in collaboration with WGO Member Societies, WGO Regional Affiliates, WGO Training Centers, and other WGO global partners, which define this initiative and provide the resources to sustain the effort throughout the year. To meet the WDHD 2017 Steering Committee, visit http://www.worldgastroenterology.org/wgo-foundation/wdhd/wdhd-2017/meet-the-steering-committee.

Web pages devoted to the WDHD campaign are created each year, which consist of tools and resources, the WGO Global Guideline and Cascade on IBD, information about this year's campaign partners, information for physicians and patients, an area to submit a WDHD event and a section featuring what countries, societies, training centers, and other partners are doing to celebrate WDHD. To access all of the highlights and happenings of WDHD 2017, visit http://www.worldgastroenterology.org/wgo-foundation/wdhd/wdhd-2017.

WGO President-Elect and Chair of the WGO Foundation, Dr. Cihan Yurdaydin (Turkey) shares his thoughts on WDHD, “Throughout 2017, events will take place around the globe by WGO Member Societies, WGO Training Centers, WGO Regional Affiliates and undertaken by our partners and supporters in celebration of WDHD 2017. Past events organized have included lectures, press conferences, symposia, walkathons, patient awareness camps, creating a World Digestive Health Week, and much more. WGO extends our many thanks to all supporters of WDHD, today and throughout the year, for helping us advocate and raise awareness of IBD!"
