World Hepatitis Day

World Hepatitis Day is coming up on July 28th! This year’s theme is “Eliminate Hepatitis.” To kick off World Hepatitis
Day, IPSF Public Health Committee is launching a Hepatitis Poster Competition! The purpose of this competition is to
share YOUR creativity and knowledge about hepatitis in order to spread awareness about this public health issue.
The three most outstanding and creative posters will be shared on the IPSF Facebook page! In addition, the
first-place poster submission will receive an honorary certificate! The remaining submissions will be posted in the
IPSF Public Health and Humanitarian Community Facebook group.
For each submission, the following criteria must be met:
1. The participation could be individual or as a group of a maximum of 3 people per submission.
Names of each contributor must be listed when sending the content via email.
