Integrate Accelerate Eliminate
Our theme for 2024 is a call to action to: Integrate, Accelerate and Eliminate!
Integrate – hepatitis throughout health systems including programmes for cancer, maternal and child health, HIV, TB, harm reduction, non-communicable diseases, universal health coverage and primary health care.
Accelerate – action through community-led services, expanding testing and access to treatment, increasing advocacy, empowering people living with hepatitis, generating political commitment and developing new approaches to financing, generating and using data to target action and promote patient-centred care.
Eliminate – hepatitis by 2030 through forging new partnerships, generating unique synergies, and identifying opportunities for future collaboration.
- Foster collaboration across a wide group of stakeholders to achieve elimination by increasing innovation, collaboration and joint-working.
- Promote the public health approach to hepatitis elimination which places people living with hepatitis and the affected communities at the centre of the response.
- Accelerate the sharing of best practice for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of viral hepatitis.
- Empower governments to accelerate their efforts to reach the 2030 targets of eliminating viral hepatitis by building the knowledge and awareness of delegates.
- Provide a platform for the communities disproportionally affected by viral hepatitis, such as people living in endemic regions, people who inject drugs and indigenous peoples, to connect with decision makers and the wider sector.
Excellent meeting. Hope its outcome materializes all over the world for the benefit of all patients.
Great to get ideas from other colleagues in different countries.
Very educative and inspiring sense of belonging to a global community of common zeal and enthusiasm with an amazing experience of shared-individual and collective strategies at combating the viral hepatitis scare and the prospects of networking.
A great opportunity to hear from around the world problems that are common to all.
We learnt through presentations the global situation of hepatitis all over the world and the toolkits of a national planning. It was also an opportunity to share experiences between governments and civil society.
An amazing international platform for knowledge sharing.
