A Global Health Concern
Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver. It's most often caused by a virus but can also be caused by drug or alcohol use. Vaccines are available for some types of hepatitis.
About 325 million people worldwide are living with hepatitis and many more are undiagnosed. This is why hepatitis prevention, testing, and treatment are essential for eliminating viral hepatitis.
The Different Types of Hepatitis
The most common types of viral hepatitis are hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C.
Hepatitis D and hepatitis E are serious liver diseases that are found worldwide, but are uncommon In the United States.
If you're planning to travel internationally, check with your healthcare provider to see if you should be vaccinated for hepatitis A and B.
