Community Impact Programme

To strengthen our community voice, and support our mission to harness the power of people living with viral hepatitis to achieve its elimination, we have introduced our Community Impact Programme (CIP).  

CIP aims to improve your ability to advocate at a city, state and national level for viral hepatitis services and funding through an e-learning course, and a taught accelerator programme. 

Together, these will help you become a more powerful force for change by giving you the knowledge needed to form your message, and the tools to deliver it – bringing both the head and the heart to your advocacy.  

E-learning course

Take part in a range of remote study modules, complete them in any order, and at your own pace. New modules will be introduced throughout the year. 

 Modules include: 

  • Understanding hepatitis 
  • Understanding diagnosis 
  • Hepatitis B 
  • Hepatitis C 
  • Hepatitis D 
  • Developing an advocacy strategy 1: Planning it 
  • Developing an advocacy strategy 2: Doing it 
  • Developing an advocacy strategy 3: Evaluating it 

The accelerator programme

  • CIP’s accelerator programme will provide a deeper dive into the e-learning modules. Hosted by a dedicated course trainer, participants will take part in five online workshops, and a face-to-face session ahead of the World Hepatitis Summit in Lisbon, Portugal on 8 April, 2024. To further enhance the learning opportunities through this programme participants will also attend the World Hepatitis Summit, from the 9-11 April, 2024.  

    The programme will run for a duration of 12 weeks and participants will be expected to actively participate in all online and face-to-face workshops and complete any tasks in preparation for this.
