About us

We are members of the Rotary community and we have created this RAG to engage our Rotarian friends in eradicating viral hepatitis worldwide. Our goals are to: spread information about the disease, raise funds for mass testing for the hepatitis C virus, conduct awareness campaigns, and eliminate the virus on a global scale.

The RAG was borne out of a project in Brazil, Hepatitis Zero, which was conceived by Humberto Silva, a Brazilian ex-sufferer of hepatitis C, and aims to be the world's largest hepatitis C eradication campaign. Its mission is to ensure the identification of those who have the virus and adequately treat them after they have been properly diagnosed.
