Viral hepatitis is the seventh leading cause of death in the world, killing more people than traffic injuries, HIV and AIDS, or diabetes. Every year chronic viral hepatitis, of which hepatitis B and C are the most common forms, kills a million people, roughly 20,000 of them in the United States. These deaths could be prevented. Hepatitis B vaccine conveys 95 percent immunity, and new therapies for hepatitis C cure the vast majority of patients.

A report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, released on April 11, 2016 concluded that both hepatitis B and C could be rare diseases in the United States, but there are substantial obstacles to meeting this goal. Many of those obstacles have implications for public policy -- which has clearly not kept pace with the depth of the problem.??This year's locations 7/23/2016 San Diego, CA 8/27/2016 New Orleans, LA 9/10/2016 Irvine, CA 9/17/2016 Weehawken, NJ 9/17/2016 Denver, CO 10/1/2016 Dallas.
