    Viral hepatitis, a group of infectious diseases, affects millions of people worldwide. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates 325 million people worldwide are living with chronic hepatitis B or chronic hepatitis C. Deaths due to viral hepatitis reached 1.34 million in 2015, comparable to the number of deaths caused by tuberculosis and HIV. Yet, effective measures such as educational programs for people who inject drugs and ensuring infants born to hepatitis B infected mothers are vaccinated against hepatitis B would dramatically reduce hepatitis B and C infections worldwide.

    This session of Public Health Grand Rounds discussed how new therapies and technologies can be used to eliminate hepatitis B and C. Learn how multiple approaches and working with health partners can help reach the goals of eliminating these diseases. Find out about the promising work that Australia, the state of New Mexico, and the city of San Francisco are doing.
