Global history, local momentum
31 May 2016
History has been made with the Global Health Sector Strategy on viral hepatitis (2016-2021) being unanimously adopted by the 69th World Health Assembly on 28 May 2016. All countries have formally committed to the elimination of viral hepatitis.
Congratulations to the team at the World Health Organisation, the World Hepatitis Alliance and many other advocates on this great achievement.
Now the challenge will be to achieve the screening, testing, liver health management and treatment (where it is needed) levels to achieve the elimination target. Click here to view the strategy
At a local level, momentum is also gathering with the launch today of the BE FREE FROM HEP C Community Awareness campaign test, treat and toss hepatitis C. Click here to access the BE FREE FROM HEP C gateway.
