As a global patient-led and patient-driven not-for-profit organisation, with over 260 members in 86 countries, WHA's mission is to harness the power of people living with viral hepatitis to achieve its elimination.

WHA is now focused on ensuring that diagnosis, treatment and elimination targets, set out in 2016 by the World Health Organization, are achieved. WHA's next CEO will be responsible for implementing the vision, direction, governance and performance of WHA so that it meets its strategic goals.
