The goal: Elimination by 2030

The WHO resolutions of 2010, 2014 and 2016 set specific targets for the elimination of viral hepatitis (hepatitis A, B, C, D and E) by 2030. In 2023, around 9 million people in the European WHO region will still be living with a chronic viral infection (ECDC). A national strategy plan was also published in Germany in 2016, known as BIS2030. This plan deals with the containment of HIV, hepatitis B and C and other sexually transmitted infections (see Federal Ministry of Health).

Achieving the elimination goal requires efforts at all levels. With the expansion of health examinations in Germany in October 2021 to include one-time screening for hepatitis B and C for all insured persons over the age of 35, an important step was taken to identify those affected in general practitioner care and to give them access to adequate treatment.

With our projects, together with many other stakehoders, we contribute to the elimination of viral hepatitis as defined by the WHO.
