Viral hepatitis is the world's 8th biggest killer. It affects more than 1 in 12 people, killing 1.5 million every year, and yet awareness is inexplicably low. World Hepatitis Day was established to reduce stigma and create better understanding about how to prevent and treat hepatitis. This adorable music video does a fantastic job of educating while entertaining. A catchy tune, cute hand puppets, informational lyrics and an interactive ending connecting to campaign website and social media sharing, combined to create a viral video and 40,000 click throughs to learn more at World Hepatitis Alliance. YouTube translation software detects viewers playback location and displays subtitles in appropriate language.
