The World Hepatitis Eradication Project is a Global Initiative organized with the sole responsibility of ensuring that Hepatitis is totally obliterated among mankind.
The initiative of the "Hepatitis Zero Project" came from a dream of a Brazilian, Humberto Silva - survivor of the virus, who was diagnosed as having the disease after having carried it for 38 years, without ever suspecting. He made a vow to God that he would work without receiving anything, until the end of his strength to change the situation in the world, and today, together with Rotary International, he is organizing actions to eradicate the disease in more than 200 countries.
Many people do not show clear, discernible symptoms, and as a result are not diagnosed and may continue to spread the virus to others. Only about 9% of people with hepatitis B and 20% of people with hepatitis C have been diagnosed..
You can be part of the solution, You can be the reason why someone has a chance to live.

5 things you didn’t know about viral hepatitis
1. Hepatitis B and C kill more people annually than HIV/AIDS, malaria and TB
2. Hepatitis B and C are responsible for 2 out of 3 liver cancer deaths
3. 300 million people are living with viral hepatitis unaware
4. Birth dose vaccine costs as low as 20 cents yet isn’t used in 48% of countries worldwide
5. Eliminating hepatitis B and hepatitis C as public health threats by 2030 would prevent approximately 36 million infections and save 10 million lives
Since then, I have vowed to God that, regardless of healing or not, I would put all my strength in helping other people affected by this disease... As much as I love our brothers in Africa, I cannot handle it alone.
We have an enemy
-Who has invaded our borders without warning...
-Who is silently taking out our people...
-Who knows no boundaries, no limits, no restrictions...
Our common enemy is Hepatitis and together we must eliminate Hepatitis!
On this day, let us rededicate ourselves to ensuring all people with viral hepatitis know their infection status and have access to necessary care and resources. Let us honor those we have lost too soon, and let us recognize the many individuals working tirelessly to address this disease, develop treatments, and save lives.
