World Hepatitis Day raises awareness of hepatitis B and C

On Thursday, July 28, World Hepatitis Day will be held in Dundas Square from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. to raise awareness of the diseases.

Community groups and people living with or affected by the diseases will use this day to fight for changes in disease prevention and access to testing and treatment.

"Exciting music, passionate speeches and a community health fair will shine a spotlight on World Hepatitis Day and celebrate what we have accomplished and energize us to tackle new problems," said the organizers.
