European HIV/Hepatitis Testing Week

Posted on: 17th November 2017

The British Liver Trust supports European HIV/hepatitis testing week (17 – 24 November).

The campaign encourages people at risk of hepatitis B or C (which can both lead to liver damage) to talk to their doctor about getting tested, the first step towards treatment for hepatitis B and cure for hepatitis C.

The Trust has worked with Public Health England to develop a number of video clips in several languages to help raise awareness of viral hepatitis risks. See below for the video clips:
