Hepatitis Testing Innovation Contest now open for submissions!

19 Jan 2016 Tara Farrell

Do you have a new and exciting idea on how to deliver hepatitis B and C testing? Be in with a chance to contribute to the 2016 WHO Hepatitis Testing Guidelines by sharing your ideas by March 1, 2016.

The SESH (Social Entrepreneurship for Sexual Health) team in collaboration with the WHO Global Hepatitis Program is organising an innovation contest on hepatitis B and C testing. The purpose of this contest is to identify innovative examples of delivering hepatitis B and C testing that will be highlighted within the 2016 WHO Hepatitis Testing Guidelines. The innovation could be delivery to a new population, in a new setting (e.g. prisons), or a new messaging approach to encourage testing uptake (e.g. social media). The goal is to identify interventions aimed to increase testing, providing real-world examples to be used alongside recommendations on testing approaches in the forthcoming Guidelines.
