Description

ICE-HBV and the WHO Collaborating Centre for Viral Hepatitis at the Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity are organising a World Hepatitis Day symposium entitled From Vaccine to Cure: The Road to Viral Hepatitis Elimination, in collaboration with the Burnet Institute and Hepatitis Victoria.

As the global movement against viral hepatitis is gaining momentum, World Hepatitis Day 2017 will be an opportunity to celebrate the great progresses made in the response to hepatitis C since a cure has been found in 2013, and to bring people together to reach the viral hepatitis elimination targets set by the World Health Organisation in 2016.

This year World Hepatitis Day is of particular importance to our Institute, as it will also mark the public launch of our new strategic initiative: the International Coalition to Eliminate Hepatitis B (ICE-HBV).

During this half-day symposium, scientific experts from Australia will present current research in viral hepatitis vaccine, diagnostics, treatment and epidemiology. Patients and legal experts will discuss the topic of hepatitis and migration in Australia. Finally, leading biomedical researchers from France and Singapore will detail new prospects for curing hepatitis B.

The preliminary programme is available on www.ICE-HBV.org

You can participate to World Hepatitis Day campaign by creating your campaign poster here and sending it to info@ice-hbv.org or tweet @ICE_HBV. Best ones will be shown at our event.
