ADRLF Promotes #NoHep and Latino Awareness for World Hepatitis Day 2016!

World Hepatitis Day is back! And it gives all of us a tremendous opportunity to make in global impact, by advocating and promoting liver health awareness — through the education, screening, and treatment of viral hepatitis.

This “hidden epidemic” affects over 2 billion people worldwide; and is one of the world’s top ten infectious diseases. This year, in honor Al D. Rodriguez’s deep pride in his Cuban-American heritage, we hold up a watchful lens to Latino populations around the world. We aim to raise public consciousness of hepatitis and related issues such as awareness, stigma, treatment access, and mobilization in these Spanish/Portuguese-speaking territories, particularly in under-served communities and regardless of immigration status. As put forth by the World Hepatitis Alliance, we are joining forces to help launch the NOhep initiative — a global movement aimed at uniting people from across the world to take action, to speak out, and to be engaged to eliminate viral hepatitis by 2030. United we stand…
