The catalyst for CEVHAP's formation was a Policy Workshop on Hepatitis B held in Beijing in March 2010 during which delegates recognised the need for cohesive action across the region to raise awareness amongst policymakers about the health, social and economic impact of viral hepatitis.
CEVHAP will support the development of research projects that help inform policy solutions that will drive change, to the longer term benefit of all people living with viral hepatitis. Examples of research and policy documents are listed on the menu at left.
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 )
