This year, WHO is focussing on the need for increased financing for hepatitis prevention, testing, treatment and care services in the context of universal health coverage (UHC) with a slogan “Invest in eliminating hepatitis”. This campaign can help to achieve the following objectives:

  • To urge national and regional policymakers increase political and financial commitments for hepatitis response
  • To highlight WHO’s new costing estimates[1] for hepatitis elimination within the context of health-related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and UHC by 2030
  • To encourage people come forward to access hepatitis prevention, testing and treatment services
