Hello NOheptivists,

Welcome to your November edition of NOhep News - your monthly round-up of everything happening in the world of NOhep!

This month, NOhep continues to gain support from around the world. From #NOhepGoesGlobal pictures in the Loot Desert of Iran, to being mentioned by Global Health Now in an article looking at what’s needed for the global fight against viral hepatitis.

We love to hear what you've been up to. Please update us on any #NOhep actions you’ve been taking and share photos with us at connect@nohep.org, or on social media (#NOhep).

Keep spreading the NOhep message in your networks! Together, we can eliminate viral hepatitis by 2030!

The NOhep Team
 
NOhepativist of the month
The National Liver Foundation of Bangladesh have gone above and beyond this month to spread the NOhep message! Cricket is the most popular sport in Bangladesh and our supporters used the opportunity of an important tournament to raise mass awareness. The team wore jerseys with the NOhep logo, informational leaflets were distributed to audience members and there were even NOhep wickets! The event was televised and a speech was given encouraging people to join the NOhep movement! We love to see new and inventive approaches to raising awareness! Way to go, NOheptivists! You can see the photos for inspiration here.
 
NOhep Stories
Bridging Health Foundation (BHF) in Pakistan had a meeting with a Rawalpindi mayoral candidate this month, who said that, if elected, he would be conducting #NOhep testing camps! This is excellent news... could we be en route to seeing a city with #NOhep? BHF have also been busy reaching out to an ‘at risk’ group in their community; conducting a screening and awareness campaign with people who inject drugs. A huge 80% of those tested were hepatitis C positive, which shows how important it is to raise awareness! Check out the powerful photos here.
Our supporters in Macedonia Udruzenje Oboljelih Od Hepatitisa are often busy raising awareness for viral hepatitis, but we just love this photo of the ‘Tabacco Blues Band’ at a jazz festival not so long ago. Could the NOhep movement have its very own house band?  We think they could have a hit with “What a wonderful NOhep world”!




 
This month's great achievement
NOhep supporter organisation, United Way Mumbai, have been busy this month conducting training sessions and vaccination drives at a number of locations in Mumbai. This is as part of Project SEHAT, which is a continued effort towards a hepatitis-free Mumbai!

This fantastic initiative is reaching a lot of people, and is sustainable thanks to the training this organisation are delivering! Congratulations on this great achievement!




 
This month's great achievement
NOhep advocate Su Wang has been spreading the #NOhep word to over 9,500 health professionals at the AASLD Liver Meeting 2016 in Boston. Between attending fascinating sessions on the latest information in the world of hepatology, Su could be found distributing free NOhep pins to attendees!

Did you know that more than 50 million people who inject drugs (PWIDs) are living with hepatitis C yet no new countries have established needle and syringe programmes (NSP) since 2014.
 
The Global State of Harm Reduction 2016 report, which was released today, illustrates just how much needs to be done to support PWIDs in order to meet the goal of elimination by 2030. We need to raise awareness and take action on this issue if we are to achieve a world with #NOhep! You can read the report, and find infographics to share on social media here.
A huge thank you to those who have participated in the #NOhepGoesGlobal social media campaign. There’s still time to get involved! Please tag us in your photo of #NOhep where you are, and ask your friends and family to sign up for a FREE wristband!

Here are some of the amazing photos we have received so far:
Make the elimination of viral hepatitis our next greatest achievement
