The World Hepatitis Alliance is a not-for-profit international umbrella Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) whose membership is composed of organisations working in the field of viral hepatitis. The Alliance is not aligned with any party political views, does not engage in political activity and does not discriminate on the basis of creed, religion, lack of religion, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation.
The activities of the World Hepatitis Alliance include, but are no limited to:
> Raising awareness of chronic viral hepatitis. In particular this involves coordinating global activities for World Hepatitis Day and supporting regional and national World Hepatitis Day programmes

> Reducing the stigma associated with chronic viral hepatitis by improving education and understanding
> Working with the World Health Organization ('WHO') to give viral hepatitis the profile and priority it needs
> Working with member groups to help them ensure that every country has an effective strategy in place to combat viral hepatitis
> Supporting member groups and helping them to build capacity

Mission: The World Hepatitis Alliance provides global leadership and supports action that will halt the death toll and improve the lives of people living with or affected by chronic viral hepatitis B and C. Through better awareness, prevention, care, support and access to treatment, our ultimate goal is to work with governments to eradicate these diseases from the planet.
Vision: Seeking a world without viral hepatitis B and C.
