Demonstrate your organisation’s commitment to eliminating viral hepatitis by joining the WHA Supporter Circle.  

WHA Supporter Circle

In 2024 we launched a new way for partners to make a commitment to hepatitis elimination – the WHA Supporter Circle.  

A circle is a symbol of collective strength and unity of purpose. The WHA Supporter Circle officially aligns partners with WHA, a highly respected, globally recognised organisation. It also helps partners deliver their objectives through being closer to our membership network, and the reach, insight and resources we are uniquely placed to provide.  

Making a commitment to hepatitis elimination

To become part of the WHA Supporter Circle, we ask you to make an annual financial commitment to the WHA – funding that we will use to deliver our mission to harness the power of people living with viral hepatitis to achieve its elimination. 

All partners in the WHA Supporter Circle are also asked to make a commitment to do all they reasonably can to centre patient voices when decisions are being made that will impact them, recognising the key role people living with hepatitis and the organisations that represent them play in hepatitis elimination. 

This commitment is crucially important to us and represents the values of our collective. It recognises the role everyone must play to ensure a strong, collaborative community that can eliminate hepatitis.
