IVHEM is the international meeting dedicated to HBV and HCV elimination. Participants will present updates of progress toward hepatitis elimination across WHO regions, micro elimination initiatives, and other innovative programs that improve the prevention of viral hepatitis transmission and disease. The program includes practical examples of innovative intervention studies, country elimination programs, and novel funding mechanisms for testing and treatment. Nobel Laureate Harvey Alter will provide his perspectives on the opportunities for moving from viral discovery to elimination and eventually eradication of hepatitis B and hepatitis C.
