Action plan for the health sector response to viral hepatitis in the WHO European Region. DRAFT (2016)
Please note: This is the draft version of the Action Plan - please refer to the 2017 ISBN version for the updated edition of this publication.
This is the first Action plan for the health sector response to viral hepatitis in the WHO European Region. It is aligned with both the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and Health 2020, the European policy for health and well-being.
This new Action plan addresses all five hepatitis viruses with a particular focus on HBV and HCV and adapts the Global Health Sector Strategy on Viral Hepatitis 2016–2021, adopted by the Sixtyninth World Health Assembly in May 2016, to the political, economic and epidemiological contexts of the European Region.
