1st January, 1970

Julio Burman

Julio discovered he had Hepatitis C by chance in 1994. He went through three year-long
courses on interferon treatment. These years were not easy and Julio struggled with
many challenges and questions and he looked for support.

When he realized there are no support groups or patient associations for liver patients in
Israel, Julio decided in 1998 to establish Hetz- the Israeli Organization for Liver Health.

Today Julio is cured from HCV. Nevertheless, he dedicates his life to supporting liver
patients and their families, strengthening Hetz’s capacity to advocate for the PATIENTS’
RIGHT TO KNOW they have a liver disease, and the government’s obligation to screen
and to treat them.

Actually Julio is directing HETZ and is representative of the patients in the National
Council of Liver of the Ministry of Health in Israel.
