CHANGE OF DATE: WORLD HEPATITIS SUMMIT 2017

12 Sep 2016 Tara Farrell

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Committee of the World Hepatitis Summit - comprising the World Hepatitis Alliance; World Health Organization and the Government of Brazil - has taken the decision to change the dates of next year’s Summit, which was originally scheduled for March 2017.

To ensure the success of the event, the Summit will now be held 1-3 November 2017. The event will remain at the World Trade Center, São Paulo, Brazil.

WHA members will also be invited to the pre-Summit, which will be taking place immediately before the main Summit: 30 – 31 October 2017. These two days, exclusively for WHA members, will include the World Hepatitis Alliance’s AGM and a number of workshops and events designed to strengthen the global patient voice and to help improve the skills of our members.

If you have already registered to attend you will shortly be contacted by our Congress Organisers, MCI. For further queries, please contact summit@worldhepatitisalliance.org 

Please note that the final date for World Hepatitis Alliance member registration is 28 February. Registrations will not be received from WHA members after this date. Additionally, WHA is unable to sponsor the attendance of organisations who apply for World Hepatitis Alliance membership after 30 September 2016.
