World Hepatitis Day 28 July 2019

July 5, 2019 by optima

Viral hepatitis is one of the biggest global health threats of our time:

  • 34 million deaths a year
  • Causes two in every three liver cancer deaths
  • 290 million people living with viral hepatitis unaware

 Without finding the undiagnosed and linking them to care, millions will continue to suffer, and lives will be lost. On World Hepatitis Day, 28 July, we call on people from across the world to take action and raise awareness to find the “missing millions”.

But together we can eliminate viral hepatitis:

  • Global elimination strategy adopted in 2016 by World Health Organisation
  • A cure for hepatitis C and treatment and vaccine for hepatitis B exists



The Optima Psychiatric Hospital, a healing centre, situated in the Bloemfontein suburb, Hospitaalpark, accommodating 81 patients and is operated by a company consisting of nine partners, all Psychiatrists.
