The ELPA President has participated 69 World Health Assembly in Geneve where the adoption of the first ever Global Hepatitis Strategy took place on 28th of May at exactly 12:35 p.m.

The ten-year efforts have finally paid off and The Global Health Sector Strategy on Viral Hepatitis whose goal is the elimination of hepatitis B and C by 2030 and includes prevention and treatment targets to reduce annual deaths by 65% and increase treatment by 80%, was unanimously adopted by 194 member sates, signalling the greatest global commitment on viral hepatitis ever.

This is definitely an exciting moment for hepatitis community across the globe and a strong commitment for ELPA to continue its by so far very succesful work.
