Bridging Science and New Therapeutics

Join the Coalition for Global Hepatitis Elimination and ICE-HBV for this webinar on February 1st to dive into the current state of hepatitis D (HDV) elimination. As the world continues to make progress against hepatitis B and hepatitis C, additional research must prioritize estimates of the burden of HDV, improving the quality of HDV diagnostics and therapeutics, and expanding access to HDV screening and treatment.
