"Access" landscape for Viral Hepatitis
Improving access to diagnostics and medicines will be essential to achieving the elimination of viral hepatitis by 2030. Currently 95% of those living with viral hepatitis are unaware they have the disease and of those that are aware less than 1% access treatment. If we are to reach the goal of 90% of people being aware of their illness and 80% of people treated by 2030, as set out in the Global Health Sector Strategy on Viral Hepatitis, much needs to be done.
Civil society have a key role to play in this through advocating for improved access but in order to ensure that any advocacy efforts are effective and sustainable it is important to first understand the issues in this area.
This resource hub brings together a wide range of resources specifically on access to medicines and diagnostics to help build knowledge in this area.
