The goal: Elimination by 2030
In the WHO Resolutions 2010, 2014 and 2016, concrete goals were set that viral hepatitis (hepatitis A, B, C, D and E) should be eliminated by 2030. In the WHO European Region, around 9 million people will still be living with a chronic viral infection (ECDC) in 2022. A national strategy plan was also published in Germany in 2016, the so-called BIS2030. This plan addresses 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.
