World Hepatitis Day

World Hepatitis Day

According to the World Hepatitis Alliance (WHA), 300 million people are living with viral hepatitis and don’t know it. This year, we join the quest to Find the Missing Millions.

CSIH organized an Art Contest in federal correctional institutions in partnership with Correctional Service Canada (CSC). Inmates -- a high-risk population -- were encouraged to produce posters to raise awareness of the prevalence of Hepatitis C and the importance of testing and treatment. The objectives of this project were to increase awareness about hepatitis and encourage inmates to learn their hepatitis status by getting tested. The winning posters from 2018 can be viewed Learn more about the contest and view the winning posters here
