Blocking of hepatitis B website raises ire

As hepatitis carriers were celebrating World Hepatitis Day on Saturday, seeking to raise more awareness about the disease, one of their main sources of support went down. Ahead of the day, a well-known public welfare website dedicated to preserving rights and interests of hepatitis B carriers (HB carriers) was blocked in China.

The sudden closure of Gandanxiangzhao, a BBS where hepatitis carriers can communicate freely, has sparked fury among hepatitis carriers and public health NGOs.
