Strategietreffen Virushepatitis 2022 Aktuelles Positionspapier im Kampf gegen Hepatitis B und C

Gegen Hepatitis C gibt es hochwirksame Therapien – nun soll es mit Aufklärung, Prävention und Früherkennung auch gelingen, sie zu den Betroffenen zu bringen und die Virushepatitis bis 2030 in Deutschland zu eliminieren. Auf entsprechende Maßnahmen haben sich Experten aus Medizin, Wissenschaft, Politik und Versorgungspraxis am letzten Mittwoch im Rahmen des 'Strategietreffens Virushepatitis' verständigt. Auf der virtuellen Veranstaltung, die die Deutsche Leberstiftung in Kooperation mit der Hepatitis B & C Public Policy Association durchführte, wurden im breiten Konsens ein Positionspapier verabschiedet, das die Elimination der tückischen Erkrankungen vorantreiben soll. (Deutsche Leberstiftung, 16.02.2022)
