Fight The Fakes |

World Hepatitis Day 2017


On July 28th, Fight the Fakes raises awareness around World Hepatitis Day.  According to WHO 2015 World Hepatitis report, 325 million people worldwide are living with chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) or hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection, altogether responsible for 95% of all hepatitis mortality.

Over 95% of people with hepatitis C can be completely cured within 2-3 months, but not if their medicines are fake. Fight the Fakes joins the global action against hepatitis by urging the necessity to further combat fake medicines, responsible for ineffective treatment and antimicrobial resistance. Fake medicines put patients at risk of further illness, disability or even death. What’s more, they undermine public trust in health systems and healthcare professionals.
