MORE INFORMATION

The World Hepatitis Summit is a large-scale, global biennial event to advance the viral hepatitis agenda. It is a joint initiative between the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Hepatitis Alliance (WHA). Brazil has been chosen to partner and host the World Hepatitis Summit 2017, in recognition of the country’s ongoing national initiatives and consistent international leadership in the area of viral hepatitis.

The theme of this year’s Summit is Implementing the Global Health Sector Strategy on Viral Hepatitis (GHSS): Towards the elimination of hepatitis as a public health threat. This programme seeks to promote advocacy, encourage the exchange of ideas and facilitate learning to use in the fight against viral hepatitis. It has been created by a Programme Secretariat and sub-Committees made up of experts in the field of hepatitis and civil society groups. Additional content and speakers will continue to be added over the next few months.
