CEVHAP Policy Symposium at APASL

At the 22nd Conference of the Asian Pacific Association for the Study of the Liver (APASL) held in Taipei, on 19 February 2012, CEVHAP staged its first symposium entitled: “Better health through better public policies – What we can learn from the HIV experience.”
[Programme]

Keynote speaker, Dr David Thomas, of Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in the USA, presented some compelling data emphasising the comparatively large number of deaths occurring as a result of viral hepatitis infection as opposed to the small amount of funding received by the sector - from both public and private sources . The Symposium highlighted the need to build far better public awareness about viral hepatitis and also the need for adequate surveillance data, lacking in many countries, upon which to build and develop sound policy responses.

Some key media articles following the symposium:

NOhep is a global, grassroots movement aimed at bringing all stakeholders together to eliminate viral hepatitis by 2030. It has been developed to create global awareness of the disease, similar to the red ribbon for HIV/AIDS, and was launched in 2016. NOhep firmly positions itself at the forefront of the elimination conversation, showcasing exemplary leadership, fostering on-the-ground innovative solutions and taking action to support the policy changes needed to eliminate this cancer-causing illness by 2030. Being a part of NOhep means being part of the solution. (To find out more about the development of this exciting initiative, watch this short video: https://youtu.be/Oer-rGwnKZU
