Our 2021-2025 strategy looks to accelerate action towards the elimination of hepatitis by 2030. It puts the people and communities impacted by hepatitis at the centre of the solution and looks to build on the foundations of previous strategies.
Our 2021-2025 strategy comes at a time where we have just ten years left to reach the World Health Organization (WHO) target of the elimination of viral hepatitis. Now is the time for a new strategy to coincide with the 2022 release of the new World Health Organization’s Global Health Sector Strategy on Viral Hepatitis (GHSS). Our strategy also looks to address the the evolving landscape of health systems caused by COVID-19 and the introduction of Universal Health Coverage (UHC).
2021- 2025 objectives
1. Mobilise resources for hepatitis elimination across global health priorities, national health systems, and UHC programmes.
2. Hold governing bodies to account to achieve the 2030 elimination goals.
3. Increase the impact of our members and civil society organisations by building capacity, facilitating innovation, strengthening networks, and increasing collaboration across the elimination ecosystem.
4. Amplify the voice and visibility of empowered people living with hepatitis and the affected communities to increase empathy and motivate action by decision makers.
