The inaugural World Hepatitis Summit took place 2 – 4 September 2015 at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre, Glasgow, Scotland.

A joint World Health Organization and World Hepatitis Alliance project, the event was hosted by the Scottish Government and supported by Glasgow Caledonian University and Health Protection Scotland.

A total of 506 delegates (including 9 Ministers of Health) attended from 84 countries across 46 Member States.

The event provided an opportunity for Governments to learn about WHO’s Global Hepatitis Programme and directly supported the implementation of the WHA67.6 resolution by providing Member State representatives with the necessary tools to develop national hepatitis strategies.
