World Hepatitis Day 2017

CanHepC Trainees & Staff raising awareness for WHD 2017

Friday 28 July 2017 marked World Hepatitis Day and on this occasion the CanHepC trainees and staff members took to the streets to inform and increase awareness for hepatitis C, encourage people to get tested and educate on the various treatments available.

Over 300 “Get tested, know your status” promotional material (t-shirts, pens, water bottles, lip balms) and information brochures were distributed in Montreal and Saskatoon. Many thanks to all who participated and in particular the organisers of the Montreal and Saskatoon events, CanHepC trainees Mohamed Abdel Hakim & Yalena Amador Canizares.

We would also like to thank CATIE as well as the Canadian Society for International Health (CSIH) for providing us with promotional material and information brochures. 

Finally we would also like to underline all the efforts made by our CanHepC members & partners accross the country raising awareness for hepatitis C and the NoHep movement.
