About the content

Viral hepatitis is among the greatest public health problem in the world with deaths that has surpassed HIV/AIDS by 2014. Most of the deaths are caused by liver cancer or liver cirrhosis among the estimated 350-400 million people living with undiagnosed or untreated chronic hepatitis B or C infection. Eliminating the public health problem of hepatitis is feasible by ending transmission, reducing chronic viral hepatitis complications with screening, care and treatment and by ending disease stigma and discrimination. Achieving this goal will require healthcare workers who are knowledgeable and proficient in hepatitis prevention and control.

KNOW HBV/HCV is an open-access, online training course developed for practitioners and students in primary care and public health. The content of the course is based on the best available data and technical guidelines from professional societies, World Health Organization, and US Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Upon successful completion, the participants will have learnt about the burden of chronic hepatitis B and C and liver cancer, the types of viral hepatitis and transmission routes, prevention, hepatitis B vaccine administration and storage, diagnosis and monitoring of chronic hepatitis B, prevention of blood borne infection in the healthcare settings including injection safety and post exposure prophylaxis.

The training is developed by Asian Liver Center at Stanford University.
