Global partners issue 'historic call to action' on hepatitis

This  year, the  WHO  and  its  member  states  have  made significant  advances  to  tackle  the  disease. In March, participants at the WHO's first global partners meeting on hepatitis agreed on a historic 'call to action to scale up the global hepatitis response'. In April, WHO issued new recommendations for treating hepatitis C. And in May, world health assembly delegates from 194 member states adopted a resolution to improve the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of viral hepatitis.
