World Hepatitis Day, 28 July 2015

28/07/2015 Worldwide, 400 million people are living with hepatitis B virus (HBV) or hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. These chronic infections are responsible for more than half of all cases of liver cirrhosis and nearly three quarters of cases of primary liver cancer. To mark World Hepatitis Day 2015, Dr Ramou Njie, a specialist in liver diseases and head of both the Gambia Hepatitis Intervention Study (GHIS) and the Prevention of Liver Fibrosis and Cancer in Africa (PROLIFICA) project, revisits the long-standing collaborative GHIS programme, which established that the vaccination of newborns against HBV could prevent HBV infection and liver cancer later in life.
