That this House notes World Hepatitis Day 2021 on the 28 July which aims to raise awareness of those living with Hepatitis, a disease that causes inflammation of the liver, a vital organ that processes nutrients, filters blood and fights infections; further notes the Hepatitis Can't Wait Campaign, which raises awareness on how patients can't wait for Hepatitis testing, life saving treatment, screening and greater investment into research in that area; recognises that there are 400,000 individuals in the UK suffering today from that disease and that there are increasing calls for the Government to allocate additional resources into Hepatitis research and testing.
