On the occasion of World Hepatitis Day, the WHO Regional Office for Europe has published a Compendium of good practices in the health sector response to viral hepatitis in the WHO European Region.
In line with implementation of the Action Plan for the Health Sector Response to Viral Hepatitis in the WHO European Region, the WHO Regional Office for Europe launched an official call for good practices on viral hepatitis in May 2019. National health authorities, intraregional programmes, national technical focal points and programmes, civil society organizations (CSOs) and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) responding to viral hepatitis were invited to submit exemplary practices. The narratives were collected over six months from May to November 2019, compiled and evaluated against pre-defend criteria, and technically reviewed by WHO experts in the Regional Office.
This compendium includes 34 practice examples from 18 Member States LQ the WHO European Region authored by various actors in the collective response to viral hepatitis, including government and national viral hepatitis programmes, academia, public health/research institutes and NGOs and CSOs.
