Hep Voice December 2022

Welcome to the last edition of Hep Voice for 2022! 

In this edition we include a special feature on The Global Fund and opportunities for countries to request support for hepatitis related services. 

This year also saw global health organisations come together to call on Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, to immediately start their hepatitis B birth dose programme. The letter was published in The Lancet Gastroenterology & Hepatology – read the full letter inside.

We hear from WHA President, Danjuma Adda, and Emmanuel Ishaku from the TY Danjuma Foundation who share the work of their organisations in the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of hepatitis B.

We share the launch of the Find the Missing Millions (FMM) video series which showcases the amazing work of WHA members around the world.

Finally, as part of Hep Voices series, we hear Tony’s story on how his journey with hepatitis C led him to become a peer support worker for people in prison.

We hope you enjoy reading this edition of Hep Voice and we wish you all a Happy New Year!
