OH I think any publicity at all towards ending this disease is a good thing and honestly I don't care who they are as long as they get the cause and information that is CORECT out there to the general public and those walking around with the disease who have no idea or no thought towards it.
But then again, I love the pharmaceutical companies that - although for monetary gain and profit margins - are out there creating things like Telepravir and Bocepravir - who changed monotherapy with interferon to SOC with ribavirin weight based and pegylated interferon.
Until there is a cure for EVERYONE I just will settle as best I can and keep praying for the day.
But that's just my opinion.
i disagree with you mike.
today is WHD it cant be every day, its today its design is to increase awareness and bring it in to the minds of people with or with out hep c, if it was every day people would be blase and bored of it very quickly.
Would you still feel the same had you been accepted into the Boce trial?
You always seem so negative.
Really Mike - life is good.........at least once in a while anyway.
Yes, I agree, it's like 8th March-womens Day!, One day out of 365, dedicated to something so important, ....
Does you back hurt from carrying that chip on your shoulder?
If every day was dedicated to every serious disease it would be rather absurd.
There are a lot of very important diseases - you know?
"Enough said. "
Now there's something we agree on.
The World Hepatitis Alliance
The World Hepatitis Alliance is a non-governmental organisation that represents approximately 280 hepatitis B and C patient groups from around the world. As a coalition of advocacy groups, the World Hepatitis Alliance is a global voice for the 500 million people worldwide living with chronic viral hepatitis B or C.
Then at least people can educate themselves and decide for themselves about the WHA.
I must disagree with you Mike.
I think it's great that so many people are doing something concrete to create awareness about hepatitis B & C. This world wide campaign is big and they are besides others also trying to get people to get tested. I am thankful to all these volunteers doing this amazing work!
Way to go... Every 12th person has either hep b, c or both.... Thus the slogan
Am I number 12?

Praying and letting people you don't know and haven't voted for represent you isn't going to help, I don't think. Did you elect thw people running WHA to speak for you?

Whereas if it's one day a year, they can get all worked up for the day and then forget about it, huh? Like voting every four years and then not participating in any political organizations. How easy it is to get off the hook.
