SAVE THE DATE World Hepatitis Summit 2017
On 29 – 31 March 2017, the second World Hepatitis Summit will take place at the World Trade Center in São Paulo, Brazil.
Designed to provide a focus for efforts to implement the first ever Global Health Sector Strategy on Viral Hepatitis, the Summit is a joint project between the World Hepatitis Alliance, World Health Organization and Brazilian government.
Viral hepatitis is the seventh leading cause of death globally, accounting for 1.4 million deaths per year – more than HIV/AIDS, or TB, or malaria.
The World Hepatitis Alliance provides global leadership and supports action that will halt the viral hepatitis death toll and improve lives. Through advocacy and policy work, building capacity among our members and raising global awareness, we aim to give viral hepatitis the priority it deserves.
